Welcome to Mess on the Desk

Recently I saw a post to a genealogy list with a subject line, “Papers, papers everywhere!” This list member in New York was asking the typical question that genealogists ask—what do I do with these papers, files, and scraps of things about my family? How do I file them in a useful way? What is the best way to preserve things and get organized?

I have read books about how to organize your home, how to organize your calendar and tasks, and how to organize your business. But there is a need for a site with advice on how to organize your genealogical information. Welcome to Mess on the Desk!
