Abstract: In this paper the authors prove a general theorem on generating relation for a certain seqeunce of functions. Many formulas involving the families of generating functions for the Jacobi and the so called extended Jacobi (or Fujiwara) polynomials given by Sharma and Manocha , Manocha , Sharma , Sharma and Mittal , Manocha and Srivastava ,, Pittaluga, Sacripante and Srivastava  are shown here to be special cases of a general class of a generating function involving Jacobi (or Fujiwara) polynomials and multiple hypergeometric series of several variables. It is then shown how the main result can be applied to derive a large number of generating functions involving hypergeometric functions of Appell, Lauricella, Kampé de Fériet, Srivastava, Pathan, Exton, Chandel, Khichi, Karlsson, Chandel-Gupta, Pandey, Dhawan and other multiple Gaussian hypergeometric functions scatterred in the literature of special functions.
