Genota Forms is a research assistant for family historians enabling the storage and management of all types of form and/or list based information in a single application. It is designed to enable the user to link people and locations stored on master files to Forms, enabling common links to be readily identified and/or extracted for further analysis.
Underlying Genota Forms are Templates which define the Forms available for use.
A starter set of Form Templates is provided with Genota Forms to assist users familiarise themselves with the program. In addition, users can create their own Form Templates very simply with the assistance of the Template Wizard. User defined Templates may be designed to replicate the structure of original documents, or to assist in recording and managing information to specific requirements. Once the Form is created, the family historian can transcribe certificates and the like, or load raw data from an external file into the Form.
