If you are looking for ready-made forms or templates to help organize or enrich your family history research, check out Genedocs Innovative Forms Library for a massive collection of free forms to accommodate just about every need.
The 30 available forms at Genedocs cover a variety of genealogical subjects, including an ancestor outline list, research logs, military service summary, biography templates, timelines, and comparison tools for tracking family traits and naming patterns. You will also find planning forms to help prepare for inevitable life changing events.
Note: If you don't have Microsoft Office, I've had no trouble importing the forms I've downloaded so far into OpenOffice.
Also be sure to check out the Genedocs Blog.
I, for one, will be spending this weekend transcribing census data into Census Summary Sheets.
