Writing Family History Book needed on: April 29, 2012, 19:23
So I have had Patricia Law Hatcher's "Producing a Quality Family History"for years. I am wondering if there is a newer (possibly better) book out there? It was written in the 1990s. If you have any suggestions, please post them. I'd like to find a book, or settle for this one, in the next couple of weeks before I start a new project.

Sharon Debartolo Carmack wrote You Can Write Your Family History in 2009. You might take a look at it. You'll find it at Moultrie Creek Books (http://moultriecreek.us/books/?p=205). I personally doubt that much has changed in the writing arena over the years. The publishing side of things, however, have changed dramatically. If you're looking for a tool/software to help you write, I would highly recommend Scrivener (http://www.literatureandlatte.com).
