In 2017-2018 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 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 75% complete. About 10 chapters, perhaps 100 more pages, are yet to be written or finished.

Presently there are 444 pages viewable. They have 537 photographs or images in them, 940 hyperlinks embedded in the words, which represent 15,476 additional pages. The size currently is about 110,000 words, not considering hyperlink pages.

This truly is an encyclopedic presentation.

The most complete file is the Microsoft Word DOCX document. The file is up to 250 MB in size. The Word version will function with all the hyperlinks. An Adobe Acrobat PDF version is available, but the hyper links do not work in it.

You may keep the downloaded Autobiography recorded on your computer, and may copy any parts of it you wish. If you choose to duplicate parts of the information for a document your publish, reference to this source would be appreciated, but is not reuired.  

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.
