Online Family Group Sheet

It's taken nearly 3 weeks but the Genealogical Society of Victoria now has an interactive online Family Group Sheet.  Like the Pedigree / Ancestry Chart, this was created to assist with the various types of Research Services available through the Genealogical Society of Victoria.

Although created for the GSV Research department, the uses are many and a bonus to everyone.  The Family Group Sheet is a PDF file set up as a form.  You can:
  • Complete and email the form to ensure the most productive outcome for your GSV Research Requests
  • Complete some / all of the fields and save the PDF file to your hard drive
  • Electronically input data into the form
  • Download the form
  • Print the form
  • Manually input data
  • Email completed forms to family and other researchers 
As part of this exercise, each type of Research Service now has its own specific Research Request Form.

An online form has also been added for sending additional documents that support your Research Request - certificates, Family Group Sheets etc.

And be warned - each browser treats PDF Forms differently!  If you have problems completing the Form online, save the FORM to your hard drive and open it in Adobe Reader - all the features should then work.
