Hi Donna, here is how I have organized my information. I have assigned a different ref ID# number to each person in my database.I then start a master reference list for each individual and on that sheet I have columns titled State, record Type, and Ref Index #. Now say I have a copy of the 1870 census that lists my great-grandfather as head of family and his family. His number is 318 so if the 1870 census is the fifth pice of information I tag it 318-5.I also include that record ID# to each and every family member listed on their master data sheet. In 1850 my great-grandfather was listed on his fathers household, and thus a record id# of 276-8 is put on ggrandads master sheet. This way only one copy of any document is needed and all can be put in a file in numerical order and easy to locate using the individual master data sheet.
As far as LDS data yes there is alot of it some correct some not. I enter that info after I verify it, but until that happens the info goes into a separate file to be proven first before I list it as a source. Hope this helps some
