I Recommend this eBook

For years, people in my family have passed around very neat hard copies of our family history. However, as I have had children of my own I have wished there was a way to pass each child a copy of the same material. A quick search on Amazon for how to create ebooks for family histories and I found this little neat book. Now I have the task of converting my existing books to this digital format. This book is well written and has step by step instructions (and examples) of how to create these books. I recommend this to anyone one interesting in creating ebooks.-from Amazon.com review By Smith
