The following book review was written by Bobbi King:
Unpuzzling Your Past. Fourth edition. By Emily Anne Croom. Published by Genealogical Publishing Co. 2010. 278 pages.
Ms. Croom does a service to the research newcomer (and maybe a few old timers) by describing an effectively efficient filing system to implement from the very beginning. Piling up your research records on the living room table is like throwing your driver's license in the glove compartment: when the state trooper wants to see it, you'd best be able to find it fast. So it is with sources, notes, copies, emails, documents, photos: best to have a logical and current filing system in place so that years later, you'll be delighted and grateful to yourself when you retrieve a document without fuss, frustration, and fury.
