Robison, Hilarie Hicks. How to Finalize your Personal History for Printing and Sharing, Legacy Tale, 2016, 40 pages.

I’ve personally helped clients and friends produce various types of family history books and I know the process can be daunting. I’ve done print, print-on-demand and even ebooks and let me tell you, there are so many details to remember! If you want a guide to the family history book process you can’t do much better than How to Finalize your Personal History for Printing and Sharing by Hilarie Robison.

The crux of the book is the use of a “three-part process” which includes 1) editing and finalizing text; 2) focusing on layout and design; and 3) handling printing preparation and making decisions on options.

Why I Think How to Finalize your Personal History for Printing and Sharing Works

One of the areas often “rushed” or “overlooked” is the proofreading and editing process when producing a family history book. Robison reminds us that this entire project is an investment and you are leaving a legacy . . . so why not put the proper effort into it?

Robison’s formatting tips are solid and spot on; she stresses various options that are easy-to-use and that I myself have recommended to clients and colleagues. Robison also reviews options for additional sections that you may not have considered: appendices with letters and diaries, pedigree charts and more.

The printing process is probably the most confusing and vexing for most family historians. Robison covers all the bases and answers questions about printing options, how many copies to make, how to provide copies to family members at prices ranging from free on up, and more.

Finally, there are some EXCELLENT tips throughout the book in the sidebar! These are coming from an expert who has produced many family history books so Robison knows all about printer deadlines, layout and more.

Conclusion

In How to Finalize your Personal History for Printing and Sharing, the author Hilarie Robison provides a well-conceived three-part plan for you to finally produce that family history book! With valuable tips and practical (and proven) advice, you could easily have your book ready for Mother’s Day, a family reunion this summer, or as gifts for the 2017 holiday season!
