Preservation Photocopying: See preservation photocopying webpage.

Print Margin: Presses cannot print edge to edge on a page (impression area). Binding requires trimming also. Proper margin allowance ensures a pleasing end product. The gripper margin includes space that, while impression will take, it is not always quality.  Additionally, for books, a sizable clear margin makes a more eye appealing book.  (White space all around)

Terms marked with an asterisk (*) are not generally used in our office.

Consider using QR codes within your traditionally printed black and white book to allow access to any full color photos you have. This can be just color over the printed black and white, or instead of taking page space with a printed photo.

Having trouble finding anything in local records? Have you considered the “alternate” federal records to the standard (10 year) census? In addition to military and pension ancestors may have homesteaded or even purchased federal property. Also, there are some special schedules to the federal census. Most federal records are available from or through the National Archives in Washington DC, or their regional archives. Be sure you learn all the types of records (local, state and federal) are available when you are at a brick wall.
