After a hiatus for summer vacations (weeks 27-35), it's time to get back to organizing for our 21st Century Organized Family Historian project. This week we are going to ease into it (sort of) by repeating a previous project. It's one that needs repeating, especially after vacations and research trips! This week we are going to catch up with processing digital files.
Select at least one (more if you have time) of your digital gadgets and do the following:
- Transfer the files to your computer (or wherever it is you store such digital items).
- Remember to use your organizational and file naming scheme.
- If you have decided to utilize metadata for citations, tags and other information, be sure and include that into your workflow.
- If some of your items need further processing or analyzing, add it to your to do list (unless you have time to take care of it this week).
- Make sure this work is backed up. Always make sure your work is backed up! If you don't have a backup plan, there are numerous resources at GeneaBloggers.

Good luck! As always, you can complete this week's mission by leaving a comment or writing your own post and leaving the url to your post in the comments section. If you don't have a blog, keep your own journal!
