Presented by Rebecca Bley Shamblin, sponsored by the Minnesota Genealogical Society.

Maybe it has always been a secret dream of yours to create a book out of your research, but you have felt too overwhelmed to get started. I will help you break this process down into simple, manageable steps. We will talk about the research process, what to include, how to turn facts into stories, how to organize your book, how to get it printed, and finally how to share it. You can choose any software for this project, but I will show you how Family Tree Maker and Family Book Creator can make things faster and easier than you might think. Sign up now to learn how achievable a family history book really is, and the important role it plays in preserving your research. What happens to your tree if your computer crashes tomorrow, or Ancestry.com goes down? Don't leave anything to chance. You and your descendants deserve the chance to sit on the couch and page through the story of your family, for years to come.
