Reader, Marianne Golay asked about creating "Family Books."

"Was wondering if you could help me? I'm frustrated and don't know who to turn to. I've looked on your web site, but could not find an answer to my question.

I have Family Tree Maker which is great for storing all my information. Some of my lines are 30 generations back. I have been collecting info for about 40 years, wow how time flies.

I have put together books for some of my relatives years ago, but that was when I only had 6 or 7 generations back. I want to put another book together but want it to be easy to read and not confusing. I tried some of the reports in Family Tree Maker and I was getting confused after a few generations. I want to eventually include pictures, other siblings and stories about each person, but want to start with just the basic facts and just ancestors only.

Do you have anything to help me decide how to start and organize such a book or know where I could go on the Internet to find such information?

Is there a code system that works the best? I appreciate your feedback." (Marianne Golay)
