Why create a Family History Book

All of us have a unique story to tell. We all have invaluable life experiences. We have treasured memories – the building blocks that give us substance and make us alive. We have experienced change – the birth of a child, the death of a loved one, or the founding of our town, the rise of our organisations, and our communities’ development or destruction.

We delve into our past to recall episodes and occasions; our emotions are stirred at the sight of old photographs, copies of birth, death and marriage certificates, piles of old love letters tied tightly with ribbon, postcards from overseas, mementos and souvenirs, locked diaries and hidden keepsakes.

Recently, we used the services of ‘Love of Books’ to professionally print a family history book we had written as a family keepsake. Having no previous experience printing a family history book and meeting a deadline, we needed to ascertain how to go about it, the formatting requirements, how long it would take and the cost. We wanted personal contact with someone to discuss these issues face-to-face rather than dealing with a faceless person over the internet or telephone. When we first contacted Julie, Director of ‘Love of Books’, she fully appreciated our needs and arranged to meet us. Julie readily answered all our queries, and it soon became apparent that she was technically educated across all the issues involved in getting a book printed. She assured us that our deadline could meet. What impressed us most was that Julie was genuine and straightforward in all her answers and came across as someone we believed on whom we could rely. From this initial meeting until the final draft for printing, a time frame that also included having a book cover designed, we found that Julie willingly made herself available by email, telephone, or personal contact. She promptly answered and addressed any issues or problems as they arose. Her diligence took any possible frustration and stress out of the whole process, making it an overall enjoyable experience. Not only was it possible to get our book printed, but it was to our satisfaction and within our tight deadline. Our experience with ‘Love of Books’ was a very positive one. We have no hesitation in recommending Julie to anyone who may be thinking of printing or publishing a book. Robert (retired Police Minister) & Larrane Mc Donald. Highland Park, Queensland.
