Forms

Expense Journal

The expenses you will incur will vary just like in any other hobby. You will purchase stationery, forms and charts. You will spend money on postage, photocopies and long distance phone calls. You may request certificates from the government. You should have access to a good atlas to find the neighboring counties or large nearby towns and cities. Remember names of places and boundaries may have changed over the years.

If you choose to enter your information on a computer, genealogical software will be purchased. And who knows, maybe then a scanner―and all the electronic equipment we can add. Then CD-ROMs and books...

You can control your costs, just like any other hobby; you can spend a lot or very little. Keeping an expense journal will enable you to monitor your spending. It will also be a reminder to you if you have ordered something but have not received it yet.
