Forms and Checklists remind us what information we need and what is missing.

I use these to keep track of my own genealogy and the research I do for others.

I provide them as a public service to the genealogy community and my students. Please, print them as often as you like. Share the link to this page with your friends. Use them for your own research. But, be sure to keep the copyright notice and business contact info attached.

To share these forms with friends, share the link to this page ( so everyone has the latest and greatest version, they know who made these forms, and they have a opportunity to read my posts or take my classes to learn how to use them.
