Have you thought about publishing your family history but can't decide which format is best for you?
Join us for an overview and discussion of the many forms of sharing your story, either online or in printed book form.
The presenters of this course are:
Clare McGuiness - Publishing from your software program (focusing on Family Tree Maker)

The potential of e-publishing ranges from hyperlinking stories to images to putting whole books on the internet.
