Why Not Self-Publish Your Family History Book?

You may wish to write up your family history research and self-publish it. I wrote up my own family history using Microsoft Word. I added family charts, maps, pictures of family heirlooms.

Write A Family History Book

I broke up my book into chapters, each of which looked at a separate branch of my family.

Binding your book is simple!

After completing my book I then converted it into a PDF file. From there I was able to print it out at home and get it paperback binded at a stationary shop.

I must admit I went with the cheap option but I was very happy with my book of 300 pages that I produced. I was able to print out a copy for my parents and each of my siblings.

You may though wish to hire a publishing company that can print out and bind your work. And you may also wish to sell your book.

You may even consider giving your local library or family history society a copy as well.
