Saving Your Ancestors for Future Generations

Saving the family history for the next generation is the main reason I print my family histories. I see more interest from my children when they are reading the narratives and viewing the pictures. They show no interest in doing the research but have begun to ask many more questions. The grandchildren have also read some of the passages. Leaving my work in a bound printed book gives me more hope that someone in a future generation will continue the story. Self-publishing is an economical method to publish a bound book and still limit distribution to family members. Self-publishing also allows me to speak in my voice and tell the story of my ancestors.
