​Valuable Historical Treasures 

The Sheboygan County Historical Research Center is a highly valuable and unique treasure for our area, efficiently and professionally preserving items of local history which would otherwise be lost, supported solely from donations, and available at no cost to researchers.

Monday, September 11, 2017  --  Rounding Up Your Family's Black Sheep

It would be an unusual family indeed that had no Black Sheep. And the hobby of genealogy wouldn't be as much fun. We'll learn techniques to find those who did not always walk the straight and narrow.






Writing a book about your family or your genealogical research can be a major challenge, but it is just the first step in getting your publication out to your family and other interested people. The advent of print on demand and of electronic publishing, also known as eBook publishing, adds options for publishing and distribution of family histories and genealogies. It is important to understand the overall process of traditional publishing to understand the differences with the newer technology.  We will learn about a couple of different affordable options for publishing, learn how to begin, how to structure your book, and much more.
