I have been using my own forms for genealogy for sometime now and thought to share them with you. If you click on the highlighted name for the form you can print or download any or all of these pdf’s.
When I started doing this 30 years ago it was all about the paper trail. I often would go through a whole microfilm of parish records and extract all the individuals with the same family name I am working on.
I use these Mini family group sheets to write the information down as I go. I can then later go back and review the relationships and information to make determinations about the families relationships to each other.
I also have a form in red for the maternal lines.
Another form I use a lot is my Document Log. This is also available in other colors. Red, orange, green. This log lets me see at a glance where the holes in the story of an individual are and where next I should focus my research.
is one I keep in the front of each of my binders. I have seen several different ones but found the instructions confusing. I hope that this is easy to follow and will therefore be used more often.
Here is the Relationship Chart updated to include the DNA range (low-high) cM for relationships.
