Before rearranging material for easier access, make sure you are not losing 
any information provided by the original arrangement, as happens when 
cemetery burial records are rearranged alphabetically to make them easier to 
find, but in the process losing the information about who is buried next to whom.
 
As an example, undated documents in a family collection may be filed with 
otherwise unrelated ones from the same period. If removed to a more logical 
arrangement of files associated with the originator or the subject, 
information about the date of the document could be lost.
