This is what I'm using to document all four branches of our family tree (one book per branch). It's a bit higher than your price range ($197), but includes nearly every kind of category/section you can think of for a project like this. The book is archival, beautifully made, and has divinely smooth, fountain pen friendly pages. There's no better family history book on earth, IMHO.
They're being discontinued after decades on the market. Best not delay, if you want one.
I'm using Sailor Carbon Black ink, per another thread here on FPN:

Why are there fourteen samples of dark plum ink on my desk? Because I still haven't found the right shade.
Is that a problem...??? : : : sigh : : :
Update: Great. Finally found one I love (Lamy Dark Lilac) but I can't get more. Ah, life in my inky world....
