That Form Everyone Wanted … — 41 Comments

  1. Thanks so much Jenny – this was on my list to come up with since I saw your post – one item off my list. And now to use it! Thanks Shirley as well for being so gracious as to share – much appreciated.

      • Brilliant, Jenny ! What I did was add another row under the census information (and above spouses’ rows) to put the actual address of the home if mentioned (although that could go in notes too ?).

        • Good idea, Magda! I usually use a section of the notes under each column to list non-family members (or at least those who aren’t parents/children), so adding a line for the address would avoid cluttering that part up – although since I mainly use this to see the in/out movement of the children (and others), the address isn’t a big part of why I use this form. That’s probably something I would just leave to my database.

  3. Thanks so much for this. I didn’t know I wanted it but just saw the title of your blog post on Randy Seaver’s blog and thought “Ooh. What’s that?” How wonderful. Yes, I think sub-consciously I have always wanted this form.

  4. Thanks so much for sharing this form! I’m new to your blog. I’m having problems printing or saving this document, can you help me?


    • You’re very welcome, Nellie! You need to click on the form above and it will open in Google Drive. You can then download the form to your computer (by clicking the little downward-facing arrow at the top of the page). Once you’ve downloaded it, you can print or edit.

      Hope that helps!

  5. Jennie this is an incredible form and just what I am looking for.
    However I am distraught that I can’t download or save it.
    Ive tried all the tricks I know, and your suggestions to Nellie – but I’m stuck.
    Do you have any more suggestions that might help please.

    Love your “chronicle”
    Thank you

    • Jackie,

      Thanks for stopping by. Sorry you’re having so much trouble getting the form. I wonder if maybe it has something to do with you not being in the U.S.

      In any case, in the interest of time, I went ahead and emailed it to you. Let us know if you break down any brick walls!

  6. Hi Jenny,

    I’m not able to download the file either. The “little down arrow” does not appear. In the information section, it states “anyone with the link can view” and under download permission “Viewers cannot download”. Could this be the problem?



  7. trying to get this Census comparison to print – but even after saving first will not work. Any chance you could email it? I am old fashoin and Love working with hard copies, as opposed to computer! 🙂 Thanks!

  8. This is awesome! In so lines of my family they’ve had up to 16 kids and other sheets don’t go up that high. Thanks for sharing!
