Family History Charts

Family History Charts can help you document your genealogical research. They are a great tool whether you have already done some research or if you are just starting out and do not know what genealogy software, if any, you want to use.  

You can use these family tree forms to organise the information you will collect in the course of researching your family tree.

You should include the source of the information so you know where you obtained it for future reference.  This makes it easier to find a record again should you need to.

I have designed free family tree charts to assist you in this regard, which I hope you will find helpful. They can all be printed and will make it easy for you to transfer the details to software or other research tools at a later date. They are all available in PDF format, so you will need to download and install Adobe Reader if you have not already done so.  

Family History Charts - GRO Index Templates

These free family tree forms allow you to copy the details from the microfiche or online versions of the GRO Index.  These charts are especially helpful should you access it in a record office or library.

Baptisms, Marriages and Burials Templates

These free charts can be used to copy the details from either the microfiche or online versions of parish registers. In this connection, unfortunately not all parish registers are available on-line, so you may have to visit a record office to consult them. 

These charts will make it easier to transfer information afterwards whichever way you have chosen to document your genealogical research.

Family Group Sheets

These genealogical forms allow you to enter the basic genealogical information about your ancestor such as birth, marriage and death dates, their spouse and any children.  This makes it much easier to transfer the information to your tree.

It is advisable to print out a collection of these forms before you visit a record office because these types of forms are rarely, if ever, available.  They can be useful should you wish to give information to other people.

You can also decide whether you wish to use a document filing system, card index system or computer software program to transfer this information.
