Publishing Guidelines for Printing and Production With OBCGS

We continue to publish our own books and those from other authors when the topic fits our mission.

Several Guidelines are available that are designed to help an author develop their book and get it ready for printing:

Writing Your Family History – outlines parts of a book and gives helpful definitions so the author understands what they need to include to help the reader use their book.

Printing Guidelines for Authors – designed to help authors understand our printing format when considering publishing with us.

We also have a book group that meets on Zoom on the second Tuesday of each month from 6:30-8:00 pm. See the calendar listing if you’re interested in joining us.  Please send an email if you have any questions Thank you for your interest!
