Our experiences of publishing with S&N
"The Malvern Family History Society has
been transcribing the Worcestershire baptism records in Excel for
the last couple of years and early in 2008 were looking for a suitable
way of publishing our transcriptions.
We looked at several alternatives, our criteria of choice being:
Firstly, finding a publisher who was enthusiastically going to work
with us it producing a web site that enabled a search of the records
across the whole of Worcestershire with facilities that matched
Excel allowing family grouping to be produced. Secondly, providing
an income to our society to enable future project work.
On these criteria we selected S&N. We have been very impressed
with the co-operative attitude of all the S&N staff we have
dealt with, we could not have hoped for better. We are very satisfied
with the financial contract reached with S&N.
We would thoroughly recommend S&N Genealogy to any Family
History Society who is considering publishing their work."
