Organizing your research - if it takes you more than a few seconds to locate a document you might want to look at using a different filing system.

Alpha Filing System

Numeric Filing System

The alpha method gets very confusing when you have several generations of the same name.

... and there are records that pertain to an entire family - where do you file them?
