Shortly after beginning to do serious genealogy, most family researchers want to begin to communicate their findings to others in their family. But an extended family, especially when it's spread out geographically, can mean a lot of individualized correspondence. Often, the solution (at least partially) is a family newsletter. It can be simply a lengthy typed letter, photocopied and mailed in bulk -- but wouldn't you like to turn it into a real "publication," complete with pictures? And these days, if you own a computer and printer of recent vintage, you can find yourself in the newsletter business before you know it. Floyd, who has published half a dozen books on newsletters and desktop publishing generally, turns her attention here to a variety of ways in which family newsletters can be produced with a minimum of layout, font, and graphics skills. What to write about, keeping it interesting, involving *all* your family, "clustering" your news stories, tailoring your writing style, and avoiding possible trouble spots -- it's all here. And so are tips specifically for the genealogist. There's also an enthusiastic chapter about producing e-mail newsletters, designing family Web sites, and the value of "cross-publishing." This very visual volume will appeal to many family historians.
