Genealogy Book Phase One Complete

Anyone following my blog knows that I’ve been putting together a Print On Demand (POD) book of my genealogical research. The first book I put together was for my family—it contains info up to the present day generations.

I used Ingram Spark for my POD book. The quality is great and everyone has been pleased with the book. And I got a little giddy holding a book with MY name on it in my hands!

The cover is special to me for a number of reasons. First, it is the house that came to be called Warawee, where my great-grandparents lived and was the hub of the Warren family for 4 generations. Second, my father, Harold Warren Gans, drew the picture!

Phase one, writing and distributing this version to my family, is complete. The next phase is making a public version to put out in the world for sale. I’m hoping that libraries, historical societies, and genealogical societies will be interested, as well as other amateur genealogists like myself who are researching those lines.

I am finishing my copy edits for this public version, and hope to have ebook, paperback, and hardback editions available no later than May.

This has been a long and involved process, but I have learned a great deal, and am very happy with the results so far!
