As I’ve said before, I hope it is clear how much we love Genealogy. I think it comes through in this book. The book was written in iBooks Author for iBooks. That’s where you can read it to best effect. While I would accept credible offers to publish, right now we’ve decided to use the book for the benefit of our Genealogy Consultancy customers primarily. If you would like more information or to request a copy, please use the contact information or form on our site home page. I can also make the book available as a .pdf, but it loses the active content - some photos, the Table of Contents, and the active glossary.

What I’ve attempted to accomplish with this book is to communicate some real sense of the profound changes that have taken place in the pursuit of your family history. Julie has spent “countless” hours on her own tree, and on helping others pursue their efforts - particularly in the past 3 or 4 years. The newest tools available are pretty amazing. The pursuit is not for everyone and I spend a fair amount of time talking about that as well.

Again, ask, and I don’t see why I wouldn’t provide you with a copy! At this point we’ve decided not to charge for the book, although if you absolutely must send money I can let you know how best to do that as well. Most of our efforts to this point have been for our own family gratis as it’s what we like to do. Julie’s tree is at 72,000 people and around 100 collaborators and counting, so the experience she’s built that can be applied to your situation is quite impressive.

The cover photo is one of Julie’s photo montages. She’s done quite a few of these mementos for various branches of our family, and a few for others. We call it a Re:Montage, and we’d love to put together one of these heirlooms for you and your family, too!
