We are getting ready to leave for the Midwest Family History Expo which is coming up on July 30th & 31st at the KCI Expo Center in Kansas City. It will be our fourth Family History Expo this year. The expos are always fun. There are plenty of great people with a deep interest in family history. There are also some excellent opportunities to learn about how to further your family history project. The Kansas City Expo will include 110 classes running the gamut from ways to use technology in genealogy research or accessing all kinds of records to niche workshops like Heritage Travel to Germany or Researching Criminal Ancestors. There’s something for everyone with an interest in family history.
We will be presenting a seminar Friday morning on Family History Books: Editing, Design and Publishing. We’ll cover a lot of ground including:
- The importance of stories and how to tell yours well
- Overcoming obstacles to getting your book finished
- Choosing photos and illustrations
- Working with an editor
- Choices in designing you book
- Paths to publication
I know there will be plenty of questions from participants that will broaden and deepen the conversation. That’s one of the things that makes presenting fun.
So, if you live in the Kansas City area and want to learn ways to make researching and presenting your family history come see us. We’d love to say hello.
