April 30 - Organize your obituies and funeral cards

April 30 – Organize your obituaries and funeral cards. Sort them by family, alphabetize them and place them in clear sheet protectors (the ones made for baseball cards work well).

Since my filing system is sorted by family groups, and I don’t have many funeral cards, I just keep them in the proper family group folder. Also, I have scanned many of the obituaries or saved them in digital form via the internet and file them in a folder labeled, “obituaries”. I give the file the name of the deceased person along with the year they died. The year helps in case I have multiple people with the same name then I know which one to look at.
