As you have websites, why not use the old but still useful formmail method? This starts out with a line like (for [ ] read the correct characters):

[FORM action="http://www.mydomain.me.uk/cgi-sys/formmail.pl" method="post"]
[input type="hidden" name="recipient" value="me@mydomain.me.uk"]
[input type="hidden" name="subject" value="My Family"]

and continues with labelled boxes something like:
[TR]
[TD]Last Name:[/TD]
[TD][INPUT TYPE="TEXT" NAME="SURNAME:" SIZE="25"][/TD][/TR]
[TR]
[TD]Forenames:[/TD]
[TD][INPUT TYPE="TEXT" NAME="FORNAME:" SIZE="50"][/TD][/TR]

with the usual checkboxes/radioboxes to help along the way and ending up
[INPUT TYPE="SUBMIT" VALUE="Send"]
[input type="hidden" name="redirect" value="http://www.mydomain.me.uk/thankyou.htm"]
[/FORM]

This way they just email direct from one of your sites, without having to print and send. Any form will take a few attempts to get right, of course!
