I would like to make a book of my family tree by printing out some of my tree where i can actually have pages to turn, but don't know where to begin. Has anyone done this?
Thanks x

If you mean how you can print off some of your tree from Genes for the book. It won’t print in the right format. Some of the Family Tree programs include different ways of printing a. Tree.

If you mean how to make the book then the stationary companies offer some simple solutions.

Amazon have a book called "My Family Tree" for £12.50p.

It might be something like what you are looking for.

If you've checked out the book which Kath mentions, you'll have seen that Amazon also has numerous other similar books, if that's the kind of thing you're looking for.

They vary a lot.
Make sure you read the details, and the reviews, to make sure you get one that suits your requirements re how many generations you want to include, how much detail about each person, and so on.

A relative of mine just printed off his history story and used one of those spring ring binders. Which meant that amendments or additions could be made.
