  4. Terrific idea! My plan is to work on two family history books. I need to collect any memories I can from extended family members about my great-aunt who was a missionary in Alaska in the 1940s and hopefully some stories about her grandfather who survived the Civil War.

  9. I've been thinking about starting a blog, and possibly writing a family history book. I think this book would be a great help for both of these endeavors. mdsmith25 at ktis dot net

  10. My plan is to figure out how to tell my grandfather's story. I've been stuck in fact-gathering mode and after attending RootsTech this year, I've finally come to grips with the fact that I need to start telling stories...even if they are just snippets and not a full "book."

    1. Michael it is easy to get stuck in fact gathering mode. Because genealogy is a detail specific hobby we naturally strive to be all inclusive and therefore hate to publish before it's all complete. If we do that we will never get it written! - Perhaps work on an anthology of your ancestors?

  11. This book sounds super! I am all about the stories, and I'd love to have more ways to share them and communicate them, especially to the younger generations.
