Would anyone like to offer advice as to the best way to pass along one's
family genealogy research?
My cousin has thousands of hours logged on his family tree search and feels
NEHGS won't really be very interested in having it because he lacks full
documentation. His work includes numerous obits as well as family stories of
personal and historical nature.
He has no children and feels his niece and nephews are not, at the present,
very interested in genealogy.
He does not have the resources to fund a self-published book - just computer
generated files in notebooks. He feels his work will save hours of digging
out the information for descendants who want the history of these early
American pioneers. He also feels he'd like to disburse his work to enough
places that it does get preserved.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
