My way but not everyone's. I have created new facts titled "Documents - Birth, Documents - Death, Documents - Obits, Documents - Misc. and Documents - Photos and enabled the description field. I then created a numbering system that I printed on return address labels. These labels are
then placed on the plastic sleeve that contains the particular document that is then placed in a notebook in number order.
Examples of some of the entries for my father are (this is the info I type into the description field):
MIS 058 US Navy Coopersmiths' Class 1931
MIS 063 US Navy Discharge 1936 (2 pages)
MIS 120 War Ration Books (7 pages) 1942, 1943
MIS 186 Poems (4 pages) 1944
I do not use the date or place fields. When I print out a 'fact usage list' I get an alphabetical list of all the entries for a particular kind of document, likewise printing an 'individual summery' will give me all
documents pertaining to an individual.
If I want to combine all documents I export to Excel and sort them any way I want.
