Write and Publish Your Family History with Online Print-on-Demand presented by Beth
Writing and publishing a book is one way to preserve the results of
your genealogy research and share them with family members and others.
But such a project is daunting. Having published four books about her
family, JGSGW member Beth Galleto will talk about how to do it
yourself. If you have already published your own books, please bring
them to the meeting to show others before the presentation. If you
have not published but feel you may be ready, Beth will discuss when
to get started on your project, what to include, and a basic how-to
for writing and self-publishing.
Beth Galleto has been researching her family history for 40 years.
Before moving to DC two years ago, she was on the board of the San
Francisco Bay Area Jewish Genealogical Society for many years, serving
for a decade as editor of the quarterly journal Zichron- Note and
later as webmaster. Now retired, she previously worked as a reporter,
editor, and public relations director. She has self-published four
books related to her family history and firmly believes that anyone
can write and publish their family's story.
