Maybe you’ve thought about putting all your family history research together into a book. I have. It seems like the best way to make all this work available to my family, in a digestible way and an easy-to-find, permanent place. And to honor the ancestors I’ve gotten to know through my research.
It’s a big project. Scary, even.
We want to get you started on your family history book in our Create a Family History Book One-Week Workshop, Oct. 25-31, guided by published genealogy author Nancy Hendrickson. The video classes, written lessons, and message boad interaction with Nancy and workshop participants will help you
- learn to build a solid foundation for your book
- put together images, documents, stories and research into a full manuscript
- share your book with your family or a wider audience
Don’t worry, you won’t have to do it all now. But the workshop will prepare you with a start and a plan, so you can chip away at your genealogy writing project as you’re able.

Think you need to first “finish” your research or retire first? Nope! Here are five comon excuses family historians give for not getting started—and how to get past those writer’s blocks.
