Produce Your Family History Book for $20

Self-publishing has gotten easier and cheaper in the last ten years. For those who have spent decades researching a family tree, gathering stories and pictures, but keep delaying the production of a book, now is a good time to explore the next steps. Learn how your digital documents can come together to produce a book that is affordable and simple to distribute within your family, ready to be discovered years from now by your family’s next “story keeper.” It’s not hard, and you can easily start with just one book.
