Cleaning up and Organizing

The Jensen family is giving me a bit of trouble, so I'm taking a break from them. I have a few records still to transcribe and I'll be sure to post them. For now, I thought It might be good to go through and organize my database and sources. I have so many files and folders that its starting to get a bit unwieldy. First, I'll go through and make sure all the files follow my new naming conventions. I'll also go though and be sure that all documents are transcribed and facts cited in the database.

In starting this process, I came across some 1900 US Census records I've collected but haven't done anything with! First up, the William G Warner Household.
Source: 1900 U.S. Census, Uinta Precinct, Weber, Utah, population schedule, Uinta Precinct, enumeration district (ED) 178, sheet 14, dwelling 224, family 224, William G Warner Household; digital images, Family Search (FamilySearch.org : downloaded 7 June 2011); FHL microfilm, 1854 reels.

Instead of transcribing items in an abstract fashion, as I have in the past, I went ahead and created a form that I just have to fill in.

So you can download the Word document for 1900 U.S. Census and fill your own information.

If you'd like to take a look at the pdf for the William G Warner Household you can download that here.

In order to make online searches easier for any family members that are researching these same lines, I'll continue to write up the "abstracts" and post them along with the images, as well as linking the pdf's. It's an extra step but well worth it, I think.
