An excellent resource for getting started writing your family history. Covers everything you need to know - including where to start, what to write about, how to structure your book and how to make your stories come alive. There are chapters on referencing, acknowledging your sources (especially for illustrations and photos) and bringing your research to life. The final two chapters cover getting your work published. Highly recommended.
