|Files for each of my family branches|
When I started researching my family history I read that it was a good idea to start a file or box for each major family branch. I didn't have any boxes, so grabbed the first thing I could find; some old magazine storage boxes and decided they would do until I could get something better. (The something better is starting from the bottom up --acid-free boxes sold with scrap-bookers in mind. I got the first one as a Christmas present and will be getting three more in different colors soon!)
The thing that is the most ironic is that the box on the left is my paternal grandfather's box. I thought we would have nothing in that box since we didn't know a thing about my dad's grandfather. The quest to know more about him filled the Thomas box so much that I don't think I could put one more document in that box if I tried. I hope my new lovely storage boxes come soon!

That was before I got a reply from another ancestry.com member with Thomas Goff in her tree. Now I think my Goff box won't be empty much longer.
