Self-Publishing: Books, E-Books, and PDFs

by Meryl Schumacker, CG

In the September, October, and November 2018 editions of NGS Monthly, Aaron Goodwin offered his suggestions for how to begin writing your family history. I have been following his series with enthusiasm, and I am thrilled to contribute this installment.

I am fairly comfortable as a writer; my first career was in television writing. However I am new to the process of genealogical publishing. As I continue with my own family history monograph, I have been struggling with the question of what to do when I am finished. Should I publish a book? Or is digital preservation the way of the future? Today, we’ll be discussing different options for publishing your family history.
