Desire To Compile A Book On My Family History

I have done a lot of writing over the years. I've been journaling about my family history for some time. I've thought about making a book out of what I have discovered. I'm adding more and more to the family history every year.

I have about 1624 people listed on my site. There are about 675 photos listed. The family tree is still growing.

I have a desire to compile what I have found over the years into a book. I see that my family history is very interesting. I don't want to loose what I have discovered.

I can't imagine how to begin this book. I don't know what the book cover could look like. I heard that the publishers choose the cover etc...

As For Dedication:
I would dedicate this book to family members seeking to know more
and to those who want to continue adding information to the family tree.

As For Acknowledgement:
I would mention some of the people who helped me out on my quest.
I know without help, I couldn't have found what I have found.
I thank God for the leads.

As For The Introduction:
I would share what I know in the beginning of my search.
