Examples of Family History Books created on behalf of families
Just a Chapter projects
This project began with a 1.5 hour interview of family members, followed by the collection of memories from other relatives via email and Facebook. The end result: a beautiful book capturing memories of a special place.
Services provided: Overall vision / structural edit for the book, interviews, transcription, writing, editing, proofreading, cover design, page layout and design, printing.
"Mom's Daily Notes"
This project started with over 2,000 emails sent daily to children and grandchildren, and a selection of original paintings. A collaborative family curation process resulted in a mini-book with a themed selection of quotes and emails.
Services provided: Curation support; editing; professional design; printing.
Maps and Family Trees
Custom elements can be a stand-alone feature, or can make the difference to a professional book. A basic map can show the towns, villages, or cities important to your family's story, or show a significant migration, holiday, or family trip. Family trees provide key family and relational context - or can demonstrate your family link to a well-known historical figure.
