My family history book design process

Launch

I’ll create a dedicated Google Drive folder to share all of the project documents with you. I keep client records on file for 7 years, but I recommend that you make a copy of all of the project files for safekeeping.

Verify

I’ll gather all of the genealogical records that you have that are relevant to the research goals. I’ll check any prior research or family trees to ensure we’re starting with the most accurate information about your ancestors.

Create

I’ll search a variety of records and write the manuscript. I will then design the cover and layout of the book, which includes two rounds of revisions.

Edit

I’ll meticulously edit and proofread your book to ensure its accuracy and flow. You'll have the opportunity to review the final draft and provide feedback before printing.

Are you ready to share your family's legacy in a beautiful and lasting way?
