Family History Books

Family history books are the ultimate custom book, compiling whatever particular aspect of family history a person may want to include. 

Common elements in a family history book are:

  • Family trees.

  • Historical documents like civil records, ship manifests, letters, newspaper articles.

  • Photographs.

  • Stories.

  • Artwork.

  • Correspondence.

Some people already have done the research and want to present the information in a way that engages the reader. This is a great opportunity to pull younger generations into the history every family has in common. Others view the family history book as the goal that motivates the research.

With so many options, the sky is really the limit. This kind of project can be as simple or complex as you choose. 

Imagine some of these books:

Correspondence collection 

This kind of book takes the letters ancestors wrote to each other and assembles them to tell their story. With topical photos, it's easy to create a book that represents the subject matter and allows the reader to step into the life of their ancestor.

Compilation of family stories and ancestry

This kind of book can have many variations, but the general focus usually is to illustrate the path a family has taken over the years. From their immigration to the current generation... the arc of a family's history is documented. This is a great way to honor ancestors but also to show future generations where they came from.
