Overview

Many people want to write a family history, but few ever take on the job of publishing one. If you've done the research, and you want to make a book from it, then Publish Your Family History is for you. It will tell you all the fundamentals of book production, together with the important details that distinguish a home-published book from a homemade one. You'll learn:

  • how to get your manuscript ready for production;
  • design ideas for the pages and the cover;
  • methods of making pages with or without a computer and printing those pages quickly and inexpensively; and
  • ideas on bindings that last and look great.

Even if time is at a premium, you're not comfortable with computer technology, or the budget is tight, you'll learn how to publish a professional-looking family history of your own!
