Monday, March 13, 2017  -- Publishing Your Family Genealogy or Family History Book

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.


 A genealogical DNA test looks at a person's genome at specific  locations.  Results give information about genealogy or personal  ancestry. In general,  these tests compare the results of an individual  to others from the same  lineage or to current and historic ethnic  groups. We'll learn about the different  tests available, what it can tell  us and much more.
