Genealogy Book Publishers

Families play a significant role in providing our beliefs, values, traditions, and even our DNA. However, as time passes, stories and memories can disappear. Studies show that individuals who know more about their families are more resilient, meaning they can better moderate the effects of stress.

Our Publishing Process

1. Initial consultation

Our experienced team of genealogy book publishers will talk about your goals, your preferred style of storytelling, and any additional features you’re planning to include. We’ll also discuss different publishing and customize options to ensure the final product will reflect the unique story of your family.

2. Manuscript evaluation

Once you’ve sent us your genealogy research manuscript, or we’ve finished the research on your family tree, our experienced editors will carefully review the format and material. We’ll focus on providing constructive comments on clarity, organization, and possible areas to improve. This review will ensure that your family’s information is written clearly and engagingly.

3. Professional editing

Our seasoned editors will then carefully refine your story. With line editing, they focus on sentence structure, grammar, and overall clarity. Then, our substantive editing process goes into the details, looking at the narrative flow and consistency of your family’s story. This dual-layered approach will ensure that your genealogy guide is not only 100% accurate but also an enjoyable reading experience for generations to come.
