So I pulled out my timeline I made in 2008 and checked it out. I updated it with a few events that took place over the last couple of years.
For each event I wrote down and asked myself do I have the documentation and where it is stored. Like my birth certificate & diplomas are in the safe, other documents are in the file cabinet and others with my genealogy binder. So some I need to move to the same place, except for that birth certificate, that stays in the safe.
The interesting things I noticed was that my birth certificate is not suitable for genealogy, it doesn't list my parents on it, just my name, place & date of birth. It is official with the state seal on it. It seems I need to request another one. My Dad purchased this certificate in 1961 so I would have a copy.

announcement of my new address
August 30, 1989
Dear Friends & Family,
Just a special announcement, to let you know my new address~
2455 E. Broadway Rd # 66
Mesa, AZ 85204
phone # ( not listing it here as it is current)
And since I am now also an official home owner I guess that means you can write my address in ink in your books. But than again who knows with me.
Take Care & Be Happy
I did move again in 1993 after Richard & I had been married a year, 950 square feet isn't big enough for a family of 5, but we are still in the same home.
This was a beneficial exercise in updating your own documentation. Thanks to Amy at We Tree for thinking up these ideas and Thomas at Geneabloggers for running this great series.
