Printed editions shouldn’t be left out of the “bonus bonanza” electronic editions may have. Add cross-reference (web address or code for scanning) in printed editions for a gateway to bonus electronic material.

Some ideas for Electronic edition publications

  • Produce an electronic edition exclusive: Make a cross reference area for specific family members with clickable links directly to all book content about that individual.

  • Family books – make a Google map available.

September 2006, V5 #9: Design Friday, Mar 20 2009 

Specific suggestions while deciding index entry/item framework:

  • Maiden/Married Names can be a handful. However, when the information is available, it is important to list the female under both in an index. For Jane Harrison Smith, you should find a listing of some type for Jane under both Harrison and Smith. This can be accomplished by a double entry, blind entry, or a see also entry.

An index adds two valuable things to any book. The index makes the book easier to use and adds to its marketability.  Almost everyone has their own idea what a complete index is.  We suggest at least a complete surname index for genealogical books.  Content and format is up to you!

Stumped?  Are your organized?  It may sound silly, but unless you organize all your notes into something that anyone could walk in and look something up in, you may have numerous clues to your missing data already.  Organize your family data, proof, lists of where searched, correspondence – everything.  The computer is great because you may choose to even cross reference easily :o)
