MY FAMILY DOESN’T HAVE MUCH OF A HISTORY. WHAT SHOULD I WRITE ABOUT MY FAMILY? Everyone has a family history. Tell when you or your ancestors first came to Pike County, where they arrived from, their vocations, children and marriages. Tell about military service within your family, hobbies and stories handed down from generation to generation.
WHAT IF I DON’T WRITE VERY WELL? Submit your family history anyway! Professional editors will be proofing and correcting everyone’s stories for grammar and spelling.
WHAT WILL THE BOOK LOOK LIKE? This hardback, collector’s quality, 8-1/2” x 11” book will be bound in a beautiful, swirl-grained leatherette cover with a gold foil stamped seal depicting the book logo on the front cover and a gold lettered spine. Its archive-quality pages will be smyth-sewn for durability. This book will be a family heirloom that can be handed down from generation to generation.
