How Will a Binder Help? Is This a Physical Binder? What if I don't like binders?

The Research Binder is a printable PDF. It is designed so you can print it and put the pages in a binder or simply use the pages loose.

There's space to handwrite on the forms or you can type into the PDF file. This allows you to work on your binder on paper while looking at your sources on your computer or use two devices (i.e. no more switching back and forth on one screen!).

Copying the information to your binder forms forces you to review what you've found and think about it more carefully than when you just look at your family tree.

The Research Binder is an organization method but it was also designed to help you with the first steps in "correlation," a type of genealogical analysis. This is a vital genealogy skill that sounds fancy but is easy to get started. 

By correlating the information you already have (plus new information you find) you see your research differently, and hopefully find clues or even the solution!

The BWS Research Binder will help you organize+analyze.
