This software 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 to linking of user defined Forms to people, locations, documents and files stored on master files, 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.

Form Templates can be modified and information can be reordered as required with no loss of information. This, coupled with the ability to search on any data element within a Form, and the capacity to link locations, people and documents to each Form, or multiple Forms, means that information is never far from the user's finger tips.

A typical use for Genota Forms would be to record all the details from birth, death and marriage certificates. Rather than having to subject the original certificates to possible damage due to to over handling, once recorded in Genota Forms, it is easy and efficient to access all documents based on a single criteria, view the details of each and even print out or e-mail the details to share with others.
