Gregath E-Zine February Genealogy Tuesday, Feb 8 2011 

It takes a village – and an open mind. If you are “hard core”, it may be a bit difficult to watch genealogy shows who’s focus are the general public, such as NBC’s “Who do you think you are?”. However, Ancestry isn’t the only person who should recognize the value of getting more people interested in genealogy. If misrepresentations or lost opportunities jump out at you, gather your genealogy friends and play a round of “what could they have done differently”.

Gregath E-Zine February Design Tuesday, Feb 8 2011 

When considering a title, the following considerations may also influence your choice:

  • Cover design – on spine (consider space for library labels) and front, how does it fit in the space available and how does it look with the chosen fonts and sizes. If the title is long, or you wish to use a large type, where is the best place to line break for an effect that is pleasing to the eye. If a long title is desired, does the entire title go on the front and spine, or just the “meat” of it?
  • Title page – don’t over clutter when using desired elements. Many of the same considerations for the cover should be looked at.
  • Advertising: Does the title help or hurt the design of promotional pieces, fit into subject lines (email, filing, reference, etc.), forms (print and electronic, book listing and cataloguing (sales and library catalogs, bibliographic references, etc.)?
