Georgia Death Certs 1928, 1929, 1930 online now

Wednesday, September 9th, 2009

Almost 2 years after the Georgia Archives put up the death cert images for 1919-1927, it has uploaded 1928-1930. Its not as easy to use as the other ones, you have to find your person on the index then go back to the search page and enter the certificate number but hey, its better than nothing!!

Non Indexed Death Certs

Publishing your family history

Monday, September 7th, 2009

Ok, I’m looking for advise here. I think I am at the point where I would like to put my years of research in bound form and I am looking to hear from people that have done that.

I have looked at www.lulu.com and their prices are great, I have looked at Cafe Press, and eh, not impressed with their prices but they might still be an option. I am looking to print on demand only, I don’t want a short run and have boxes of unpaid for books just sitting around my house. I do not need a color option, black and white is fine and I don’t think I want to go with hardcover. I’ve seen many printed in “paperback” and I think that’s just fine for my needs.

So my question for y’all is, have you done this, who did you use and why? Would you use them again and how pleased were you with your overall results?

Great site!! Its free and its free of annoying ads, which makes it one that I think you should put on your list if you have Canadian research. Its definitely one you should donate your pics to if you have them.
