I haven't had a chance to use this service yet, although the web site looks interesting. Sort Your Story is an organizational tool that stores images of genealogy records on your computer. You can use Sort Your Story to compile genealogy birth records, death records, marriage certificates, photos and more all in one place to instantly see what information is missing and create reports based on the existing information. The Sort Your Story Profiler provides the ability to quickly see what data is complete and which pieces of the puzzle are still missing.
You may also view free video tutorials at sortyourstory.com to obtain hints on organizing and de-cluttering your genealogy information.
Quoting from the web site:
Created by genealogy expert Lorel Kapke, Sort Your Story is the answer to the question both genealogy pros and beginners ask: “What is the best way for me to store my research, quickly, easily and securely, all in one place?”
By scanning your important genealogy documents and organizing them in the Sort Your Story application, Sort Your Story helps you breathe life into the worn and tattered documents you’ve carefully collected. By giving you a simple, clean and organized way to store these and keep them safe, Sort Your Story offers the peace of mind that comes from complete, fail proof organization.
Enter your data into our easy to use Sort Your Story Profiler and organize your digital documents using our colorful category specific file folders. It really can't get any easier than this!
Sort Your Story costs $19.99 and is available for both Windows and Macintosh computers. The program can be purchased and downloaded online at http://www.sortyourstory.com.
I can visualize using Sort Your Story to replace a large filing cabinet full of photocopies. All the information is stored on your own computer, not online, so I would caution you to make frequent backups!
