In 2017 Work is being done on an Autobiography that includes genealogical and ancestral reports, composed for the benefit of my children, grandchildren and any others interested in our family history & heritage. ItŐs a work using 74 chapters to cover its subjects. 

 

Readers may look in on the progress by clicking the file below in which you wish to view the work.  The modern approach to publication afforded by the Internet existence circumvents the traditional process of printing books in hard paper formats.  They are calling them E-Books.  As various descriptive words are used or other places or events are given mention, a hyperlink is embedded in that those words.  The reader tn can click on the hyperlink, if more detailed information is wanted. 

 

For example, Chapter 20 is the genealogy of the Sharpe family name, one of various family names included in this work. That Chapter 20 uses nine pages for what it tells.  However, it has 18 hyperlinks embedded in its words that represent pop-overs to another 430 pages, one part of which is a 165 page descendants report for 10 generations of the Sharpe Family surname.

 

So using this approach to publishing embellishes the quality of information access from which the reader can chose.  Currently, my estimate is the project is about 65% complete.  About 30 chapters, perhaps 300 to 400 more pages, are yet to be written.

 

Presently there are 393 pages viewable.  They have 463 photographs in them, 787 hyperlinks embedded in the words, which represent 11,849 additional pages. This truly is an encyclopedic presentation.  

There are several ways to view the autobiography.  Remember, this autobiography is a large document, which takes time to open, so be patient for the files to open.

 

The most complete file is the Word version.  It cannot be viewed online, but clicking on it will download that file to the Download Folder in YOUR computer. The Word version will function with all the hyperlinks, both embedded and open displayed.  All the photographs will display. 

You may keep the downloaded Autobiography recorded on your computer, and may copy any parts of it you wish.   

The version HTML is viewable on screen, and all the hyperlinks operate.  The drawback is that the file sizes of the hundreds of photographs are so large that photographs display only in about the first five chapters, or about 1/3rd of the photos so far.   

 

The PDF version is viewable online, and all the photographs display throughout the entire document.  However, hyperlinks embedded in words do not operate.  Those few hyperlinks that are displayed in their raw form do operate.

 

Here is a look at an outline of the Chapters, showing how many pages, photographs, and hyperlinks are in each Chapter.  It also shows how many pages are viewable through the hyperlinks. The chapters with multiple pages have had work and may be completed.

The chapters with only 1 page means, in most cases, no work yet.
Searching with a Find for "==" will take you to where I'm working most recently.
