This year there are so many blogs pertaining to getting organized, which I'm sure all of us Genealogist's would love to accomplish. But where to start. I started with Thomas MacEntee with "The Genealogy Do Over" in thirteen weeks. I attempted this program (in 2015) which was really great but definitely moved to fast for me. In all fairness to Thomas he did the 13 weeks over and over, but life got in my way. In 2016 Thomas produced a "The Genealogy Do Over Workbook" available on Amazon Kindle. He also has his program available on his blog at GeneaBloggers at
This is a program that stretches the 13 week program to 12 months. Much easier for me to work with. Thank you Thomas MacEntee for helping me become more organized at a slower pace. Hopefully I can do you proud. I should mention the hard copy (print) of this book/program "The Genealogy Do Over Workbook") is available on

Next for me enters Dear Myrtle at

In all fairness Dear Myrtle has done this program before. This is a new revised program (2016) with weekly assignments, which she states most assignments can be completed weekly.

Between the 2 programs I am trying very hard to get all my genealogy that I have been working on for the last 20 years or so organized, and I am starting to make a huge dent in this project that once seemed overwhelming and overpowering. My analysis is that not all programs are perfect for me but I need to take the most important tools that can help me from each program and develop my own way of organizing my genealogy. That they jump started me into action is invaluable. Thanks to all you bloggers that are giving me the tools to reorganize my Genealogy.
