Announcing the Family History Autograph Album!

Combining the attributes of a family tree record and an autograph book, the Family History Autograph Album is a unique way to introduce children and teenagers to the fascinating and useful pursuit of genealogical research. It would also make a fine gift for a new mother on behalf of her infant.

It was designed for beginner genealogists, who can gather family signatures from the relatives they interview while they garner ancestral names. It features nine 4-generation pedigree charts, which can record at least six generations of ancestors, on up to eight surname lines.

Also included are a reference chart for identifying horizontal, vertical and oblique relationships (illustrating the concept of “cousin [number] times removed”), nine descendant charts, and plentiful signature pages illustrated with a family tree icon or watermark.

Autograph books first appeared in Europe during the 15th Century. Signed albums are valuable to genealogists, historians and collectors. A well-documented family tree has several important uses, such as when it’s used to record a family’s medical history.

The Family History Autograph Album is available NOW from Lulu Press, which is currently offering free or reduced-price shipping:

and it’s COMING SOON to Amazon (ISBN13: 9781978255029; ISBN10:1978255020) via CreateSpace.

Both editions retail for the same price, but the Lulu edition is larger (9 in. X 7 in.) than the CreateSpace edition (8.25 in. X 6 in.). Relative sizes:

And remember, Lana Pedersen, the female main character in Irish Firebrands is a professional genealogist! Read the first eleven chapters of her adventures in Ireland HERE.

Happy ancestor hunting!

And as always, Thank You for your support! 🙂
