If you're ready to turn your family history research into a publication, join the experts at NEHGS to learn best practices in publishing your findings. NEHGS offers guidance on writing and publishing your family history project in this two-part seminar. Workshops in Part 1, held in September 2012, included defining your project, writing in genealogical format, working with images, and adding narrative to your genealogy. Part 2 delves into the editorial process and book production (focusing on self-publishing), and offers a chance to meet with publishers and printers and consult with experts.
