Written by Susan Yates and Greg Ioannou.
Published by Dundurn Press, 2010.


Many people want to write a family history, but few ever take on the job of publishing one. If you've done the research, and you want to make a book from it, then Publish Your Family History is for you. It will tell you all the fundamentals of book production, together with the important details that distinguish a home-published book from a homemade one.

You'll learn:
  • how to get your manuscript ready for production;
  • design ideas for the pages and the cover;
  • methods of making pages with or without a computer and printing those pages quickly and inexpensively; and
  • ideas on bindings that last and look great.
Even if time is at a premium, you're not comfortable with computer technology, or the budget is tight, you'll learn how to publish a professional-looking family history of your own!

Susan Yates has worked in book publishing since 1978. She has been employed in a variety of publishing and sales positions in which she has produced many books of all types. Now a full-time publishing consultant, she lives in Toronto.

Greg Ioannou is an author and has edited more than two thousand books since joining the book-publishing business in 1977, and is currently president of Colborne Communications, a leading publisher-industry service company.
