Thanks for joining us racooper!
Jungfraujoch and nearly all other trains in Switzerland do not require seat reservations:
You are right about international trains like the ones to Milan/Venice. Most of them do require you to book seats.
The SBB site does not allow bookings for Swiss Family Card holders. You can probably select "Junior Card" instead, but I'm not 100% sure about that. It will result in the same price though.
What you'd normally do is book a ticket for just the Italian portion of the trip: Domodossola to Venice in your case. You can do so through the retailers listed here. As you live in Australia you can best purchase through www.raileurope.com.au/ train/italian-international-trains-7267 or www.raileurope-world.com/train/italia n-international-trains. If you don't have the Swiss Half Fare Cards yet you can buy them there as well. Tickets for the Swiss portion can be purchased when you're in Switzerland.
