Title: Some of the Many Ways to Share Genealogy Research

Snippet: It’s a new year, a time for beginnings, taking on new challenges and setting goals. If you’ve been researching your family tree longer than you care to admit, you might be thinking about ways to share the information with family, friends and strangers. Sharing helps preserve it for future generations. There are dozens of ways to share all or part of a family tree.

The first thing that comes to mind when I think of sharing my research is creating a book. Books come in many forms. They can be professionally bound or a binder containing pages printed through a home computer. This is a large project, but the results give the researcher the opportunity to put all their material in one place.

Many researchers have taken on the task of making books, creating a lasting record of their work. Several have even sold them publicly when they felt their researcher could help a wider audience find their past.

If paper and ink aren’t your thing, perhaps an eBook will suit your needs for sharing. They need not be the professional eBook formats sold online. They can be personalized versions saved as a computer file, including a PDF.
