I am working in Genealogywise as part of a course I am taking "Social Media for the Wise Genealogist". I thought this would be an interesting group to join.

If you have Scandinavian Roots, maybe I can help you!

Do you have 'Blended Families' or "Multicultural Families" in your ancestry?

Heather, Glad you found the link useful. I was so pleased with the results on all my books. It was fun to do and the results far surpassed my expectations. What I particularly liked was the fact that all the information I put into the books was kept in the Blurb software right on my own computer which is not the case in some other self-publishing sites. Good luck with your project and let us know how your book comes out.

Steph

I've never heard of Blurb, but it looks great and I've already started on one of my books. Thanks for the link!

I have so many cousins the world over, most of them heard about the Lange Book 1525-2005 before I even got started. I had problems with translation and proofing, but finally got the project together in 2005. In my 232 page book, there are only two living people, my mother, who is 87 and an aunt. I did not write much about them in order to protect their ID.

Dave,
I didn't market my books either as that was not my intention to sell books. I wanted to preserve memories for my immediate family. I just found that the types of books I wanted published to contain photos along with some history. None of them were genealogical books per se with set formats as in Ancestry.com publishing. The photo templates and page setups available in the program you download to use in Blurb just suited my purpose just fine. I only had two books printed of each of the three publications; one for my own home and the other for my daughter.
