Design Inspiration
///////////////////////////////
Many times an author may wish to include a large format map, photo, document, or other element that doesn’t fit well into the chosen book format size. With an 8.5×11″ book, depending on the item, a double page spread may provide a bit more space for these items. Sometimes the double page spread works and other times it still may not provide enough space to do the item justice. In addition to including it via QR code or in some other electronic format, consider including it large format. Depending on your budget, this can be a folded item loose inside the cover, placed in an enclosure, or bound directly into the spine.

Brown ink on cream/ivory paper is an economical alternative to using parchment for medium to large publications – for ultra short publication, or black on cream/ivory is a great choice as it economically reproduces better than textured/parchment paper.

Genealogy ideas

One never knows what information is online, unless you have exemplary search skills, or people share unique “small” resources. One such online source is for the Cook County Cemetery in Dunning, Illinois (Chicago area). This website covers “only” 38,000 burials that included many institutional interments. The site provides more information besides just the database as well. http://www.cookcountycemetery.com/
Is your research style “direct decent”? If so, in areas of difficulty, don’t forget to gather all information available on all family members – even those without children (issue). There may be clues – or even actual information you seek – in records, newspaper items, etc. for siblings, aunts, etc.

*For search engine submission, look for links on your favorite search engines and/or run “search submission” or similar searches for lots of places to start. Note even direct search engine submission is not instant – it can still take weeks, so don’t put it off in your marketing plan.

Did you know Family Search has an extensive program to share many books freely online, and others with fair use restrictions?
