How-To Organize Your Paper Files - Using Legacy Family Tree
Page 25 of 30

What about a census record? If Asa Brown’s 1850 census record were found, listing his wife, and his seven children, where would it be filed? Behind his MRIN - #13. However, even though a census record lists information about children, who may marry later in their lives, it is not necessary to make duplicate copies of this record and file behind each person. If you set up rules, and use those rules, you will always be able to find this census in a matter of seconds. Also, since census records are so easy to obtain today, it is not necessary to file them in a plastic sleeve. Hole punch them, and file them behind the appropriate families. Later, as you have the time, these documents can be scanned and made usable for a published history online or on paper.
