While I’m not wanting to put anyone off doing a book, writing a family history really does take years to compile (I truly admire anyone that does one), and depending on how you produce it, the cost can easily be in the thousands of dollars to produce.

When you do this, suddenly, a wider family history is revealed, as many members of a family may share similar experiences while others may offer a different perspective or unique memory. Inevitable, a theme will emerge and before you know it you will have written a portrait of a family.

You are now ready to start writing your family biography. Writing Your Family History – A Good Guide Gill Blanchard has produced a book that will help all those who wish to record their family history, from the family tree, to what happened within that family.
