A Guide to Organising your Family History Records
The Jewish Genealogical Society of Great Britain has much pleasure in announcing the fourth publication in the very popular and informative
'Jewish Ancestor' Series.

A Guide to Organising your Family History Records is written in the simplest way, to help Family Historians who have just started their family history and those who have gathered a lot of information about their family and need help with putting it in order. Whether you have a computer or not this book provides examples, advice and suggestions on how to keep your records in order by the most up-to-date methods plus ideas to enlarge the social history of your family. The section on preservation is intended to help keep your documents and photographs in the best possible condition.

When thinking about a suitable filing system, it is important to introduce one which is simple, yet efficient, so that future generations will be able to pick up where you left off.

Keeping records in order is extremely important and the chapter headed 'Document Links' illustrates the relationships between sets of documents. It is only a guide and is intended for the reader to decide which documents to include.

This book would be an excellent gift for any age.
