Yes, I do ... very much!
Last years goal was to organize my research. It was just a wee bit disorganized.
Items on my do-I-have list. Obituaries? Headstone? What vital records? Many of these records were here and there. Here in a box. There in a file. Goodness, maybe more than a "wee bit" messy!
What to do? Before it becomes a total disaster?

During several webinars, I learned about Google Drive. Recently, I started experimenting, and fell instantly in love!
Another great benefit, the documents are stored in the Cloud. I can access the data anywhere. While researching at the archives I can go online and the spreadsheet.
Also, if other family historians wish, they can share the documents. I can set them to just view, or give editing rights.
As you see, some items are bold. This helps identify information still in need of research.
Other spreadsheets I have created:
Arlington National Cemetery - one central place with all the ancestors buried in this cemetery. I entered exact burial plot information. This is helpful when planning a trip.
Ancestor place of birth - this is a nice way to identify countries of origin.
