In 2017-2018 Work is being done on anAutobiographythat 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.
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.
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.
