OBCGS has an active publishing arm and bookstore full of many family histories and local history books. We also have a book group that meets each month on the second Thursday from 10-12 see the calendar listing if you’re interested in joining us). Several Guidelines have been created from this group that are designed to help an author develop their book and get it ready for printing.
The first Guidelines document below “Writing Your Family History” outlines the parts of a book and gives helpful definitions so the author understands what they need to include to help the reader use their book. The second Guidelines document below “Printing Guidelines for Authors” is designed to help authors understand our printing format when considering publishing with us.
