To all my fellow genis out there who are involved with either a family history or local history society, how do you deal with original BDM certficates?
We have several "family history" folders, based as the name would suggest around specific families. However, due to the inter-related nature of many of the older families in the areas, there is alot of cross over between these groups.
As I've been attempting to put these records in some sort of order, I've come across a somewhat scary number of original birth certificates.
My question: Should I leave them in these family based folders (where they might be missed by someone who isn't aware of the relevant connections) or should I pull all these BDM certs out and put them all in one folder?
