eSpotlight – Pressbooks for a Family History Album

Books scattered everywhere with a primary book that contains the Pressbooks logo.

Pressbooks, Continued

We've already posted about Pressbooks, and how you can use this resource to self-publish your own writing — be it a manuscript years in the making, the product of a NaNoWriMo write-a-thon, or a do-it-yourself guide. However, there are more ways to use Pressbooks.

What Else Can You Do With Pressbooks?

Another "novel" approach to PressBooks is creating a family history book!

Multiple family members can be assigned as users, each giving their perspectives, histories, images and more to create a cohesive document that can be built over time.

Gateways to the Past

SJPL also has many genealogy and history resources to research your family's story and what their lives might have been like within the context of history.
