Family Group Sheet Project
|Mercer Co. FGS Project Preble Co. FGS Project|
If this is your first visit, please read through the introductory information below. It will explain how this site works, what is here and what isn't, where to find guidlines for submitting a group sheet, and contact information for Project coordinators. Thank you.
== Family Group Sheet Projects are being developed for Darke, Mercer, and Preble counties. ==
== Volunteers who wish to assist these projects should contact the Project Coordinator. ==
A Family Group Sheet (FGS) is a snapshot of a particular family in a particular generation, often in a particular location. A Family Group Sheet is the most basic report in genealogy. Extended into the past, group sheets provide the information for a Pedigree Chart; extended into the present, they provide a Descendant Report. As the most basic building block for family research, most computer genealogy programs produce them. Genealogists are glad to get them in the mail or find them on-line.
This site will collect and distribute Family Group Sheets for those families where at least one member lived in, was born in, died in, or was married in Darke Co., Ohio. This site will NOT collect sheets for families where no members of the family had a Darke Co. connection. There are additional state and national FGS projects which will accept group sheets for other locations.
This site will use the database program CCHelper to manage this project. The program allows the project to maintain "profile" information on the submitters (e-mail address, location, URL) in addition to the Family Group Sheets. Profiles are indexed by submitters' last names. Surnames found in the Family Group Sheets are indexed as well. Those two indexes are represented by the two strings of alphabet letters near the top of every page of this site.
Note that on every page of this site there is also a pale yellow section with links to VIEW (this page, submitters, surnames) and HOW TO POST (a group sheet, a correction, a change in profile information). Please visit those links to find further information and familiarize yourself with how this site works.
