Using Office 2010 I could not get these forms to open, Word & Excel crashed. I’m using Office 2010 so that may be the problem

I couldn’t find the family tree displayed at the top of this article. Is it possible to download the one with that detail? Thank you.


I tried to open his four times. First it took too long to open. then Google said it was not a secure site and would not let me continue.


Same comment as Patricia above. The one template that looks really useful and which is used to illustrate the article doesn’t seem to be available.


There were so many ads saying Download, Open, or Start that I didn’t know which to click on to get the templates. I downloaded #19 and it opened okay, but would have liked to find the link to download all of them.


Does anyone know of an Excel-based form that imports GEDCOM data?


Give the above link time to completely open. If you are looking for the 2nd example above it is #37.

I clicked on 5 generation blank family tree template. I tried to enter my family information on the template. Do I save this first to my own computer then I will be able to enter the information?


Thank you Bernard and all who followed up on the 6 gen Excel Sheet. I was able to open it in my Open Office Calc with no problem. The Copyright is for personal use only.


Sorry all I could find a Genealogy Program not free forms. I already have a program. What am I doing wrong?

    I just clicked on the link shown in the article and it immediately to me to the correct site with downloadable, free family tree templates. I did not see any genealogy program(s). All I can suggest is to try again.


I like the generation form (first chart displayed) but I also want to put in names of their children beyond the one I’m linked with. I want to use it as a structure for a quilt and put a small picture next to each name too. Does anyone know where I can get one of those?
