Bouvier Archive Google Drive

A ‘Google Drive’ has been created for the Bouvier des Flandres Club of GB Archive.

If you are a current Club member with a computer/laptop/tablet and internet access, you may look at the Club’s Archive files and documents online in this shared folder.

The project is in its early days but so far the Drive includes a spreadsheet listing the physical Archive holdings, several photographs illustrating the range of items in the Archives, some of the Club’s newsletters, examples of Bouvier pedigrees (plus a template for you to send us your own), and some articles about Bouviers.

To gain access

If you wish to gain access you need to have an email address registered on the Drive. Send an email to this address bdfcofgb@gmail.com confirming that you are a current Club member and wish to access the Archive Drive. Your email address will be added to the list of people with rights to view.You will then receive a reply from “Bouvier Club (via Google Drive)” inviting you to view the shared folder (i.e. the Drive), with a link to the folder.

To see the archive

Click on the link. One of two things will happen: 1. You will be taken direct into the folder and will be able to view all its contents. This is usually when you already have a google mail or gmail account associated with the email address you have sent us.or 2. You will be asked to login with a google mail or gmail login. This usually means you need to create a google email account, which is free of charge. Once you do this your new gmail address will be sent to the Drive to be registered with rights to view, after which you will be able to see the contents.


This project is in its infancy and we are still learning the vagaries of Google Drive so please bear with us as we try to bring you better access to the Club Archives. For those of you without internet access we hope to display items from the Archives for browsing and reference use at Club events during the year.
