The research is done; it's just the writing that remains. As I'm now thinking a full size book is not in the cards due to time constraints and the scope of the project, this is your opportunity to get your branch's genealogy in a printed form customized to your liking.
The fee includes the setup including an ISBN number if needed and one volume shipped to you. You provide any photos you want to include in addition to what I already have or can find and you may also have your immediate family included with or without birthdates for the living. It is your responsibility to document the last couple of generations - I may have family members born after 1900 but that data is not promised to be accurate. Getting it right is important!
You'll receive a draft copy so that no setup is done without your approval. All editions will be in color and page length is not restricted normally.
Great for gifts or for your next family reunion. Once the setup is finished, you can also order as many copies as you want in addition to your first keepsake. It's print on demand so you can order one or more at any time.
The printing choices are hardback or paperback; hardback includes a cloth cover up til October. At that time the printer will start delivering only laminated covers. Dust covers are also available upon request but as these will be completely customized for you, the graphic work will be charged separately and individually per request.
Terms, conditions & samples are available here.
Additional fees may be quoted as your book is underway as stated in the terms & conditions.
Your payment is considered to be acceptance of these terms. No refunds if I have started work.
If you are one of the Harpswell Alexanders, your family is included. If you are a Maine Alexander outside that family, I most likely have your ancestors, too. Not all are completely documented and vetted to 1900 but many are. Those include:
