Don’t feel guilt-ridden. It happens. If youâ€™re starting to see large stacks of papers popping up around your workspace, break them down into smaller piles, perhaps sorting by surname first. Then grab a pile each day and spend a half hour filing and making sure information has been entered in your family history database. A half hour a day wonâ€™t seem like much and soon youâ€™ll have your files in order again.
