Organize Your Genealogy (CD)

By Nancy Hendrickson

Format: CD

SKU# X4834

If you prefer to learn on your own, Family Tree University independent study courses are perfect for you.

These courses are self-guided, "offline" versions of our online courses. You receive the same curriculum and supplemental materials, but you do the work completely on your own, making them an ideal choice for students who truly want to work at their own pace.

In contrast to our online courses, where class is "in session" for a specified four-week period, there's no set time line for an independent study class, you could approach it as an intensive crash course, pick it up on weekends over several months, or whatever works best for you.

Choose a course on CD if you prefer to have course materials gathered in a physical package. Files are still digital -- in Word and PDF format for you to open on your computer.

Organize Your Genealogy: Get Your Research in Order (and Keep It That Way)
Developed by Nancy Hendrickson

A successful genealogist often ends up with an embarrassment of riches: too much information in too many places. Whether you work on paper or do everything online, getting your research organized is essential to keeping track of ancestors and making sure you know where to put new ones in your family tree. This course will rescue you from unhelpful habits and get your workspaceÑvirtual or physicalÑtidy again.


  • how to keep track of what you have
  • strategies for organizing papers and photocopies
  • methods for managing your digital genealogy materials
  • how to manage growth and keep your organizational strategy going


  • paper genealogists who have run out of room in the filing cabinet
  • people making the transition from paper to computer genealogy
  • digital genealogists who need a better way to organize information on their computers
