My husband is giving me a few hours today to get some genealogy organizing accomplished. I have a bunch of emails that have been sitting in my inbox that have photos attached. Today I am saving those photos to my hard drive and adding citations.
I have decided that I also want to save the emails in my surname folders. I currently keep all of my email in genealogy folders in my Gmail account. While this is available to me anytime I wish to take a look, this correspondence will not be available to others in the future if something should happen to me. By saving the emails to my surname folders, I will also be keeping up with my new organization scheme to have everything genealogy saved to one area of my computer.
I am not sure what is the best way to save the emails. Do I copy and paste the text to a new document? Is there a way to PD the email with the sender information included?
How do you save electronic correspondence? I would love to hear your ideas.
