Family History – Professional Organizers Blog Carnival

Family History: Professional Organizers Blog Carnival sponsored by Laura Clark Murray & Organized Assistant

Did you know that October is Family History Month?

When I found out, I reached out to my organizer peeps and asked them to share their ideas for this month’s edition of the Professional Organizers Blog Carnival. As a result, I’ve been able to assemble this great collection of blog posts on a wide range of related topics including:

  • researching your family tree
  • organizing family photos, home movies and other memorabilia
  • creating traditions and memories
  • sorting through a loved one’s belongings

I’d like to thank everyone who shared their experiences and expertise, with a special shout-out to Laura Clark Murray for sponsoring this month’s Blog Carnival.

If you’ve already blogged about that topic, you can make your submission now. If you haven’t, don’t worry, because you have until Tuesday, November 10 at 11:59 PM EST.

A former professional organizer, I’m now a web designer and Certified Digital Business Consultant. I love helping others succeed by sharing the knowledge and insight I’ve gained through marketing my own business for over 15 years! When I’m away from my desk, I enjoy reading, photography, watching movies, and cooking.

  1. I love this whole post! I was so hoping to be able to join this blog carnival and I had a few things I should have submitted. But I really want to keep using to find out about my fathers side of the family. I started but it’s really something you have to schedule time for because it’s very easy to become immersed! Thanks for the great series and I can’t wait to check it all out!
