DIY - Do It Yourself

For the brave do-it-yourselfers out there, I applaud your effort in wanting to tackle any family history project on your own. Family history projects are not easy! (By the way, I detail the pros and cons of DIY projects in this blog post.)


Below are some resources which may help you on your journey. I would also be remiss if I didn't mention Storyworth. This can be a great budget option for those who don't want deal with all aspects of producing a book. (Note: I do not receive a commission from Storyworth for referring business to them.)

And of course, if you decide the DIY route isn't for you, give me a call at 215-645-7766 or email me at to see how I might be able to help.
