BOOK - Genealogical Writing in the 21st Century: A Guide to Register Style and More, 2nd edition
Edited by Michael J. Lecler and Henry B. Hoff
Published by New England Historic Genealogical Society, Boston, 2006

It is most appropriate that New England Historic Genealogical Society (NEHGS) publish a guide to genealogical writing, not only because today NEHGS actively publishes books, CD-ROMs, online articles, a journal, and a magazine, but because historically so much genealogical writing has been shaped and influenced by NEHGS.

Since its founding in 1845, NEHGS has played a leading role in establishing genealogical guidelines and determining a genealogical writing style. NEHGS receives numerous requests each year for style guidelines, and in response produced this guide which addresses substantial changes in genealogical writing generally, and at NEHGS specifically.

Genealogical Writing in the 21st Century seeks to clarify, simplify, and demystify the art of writing for a broad range of publications that address genealogical audiences. Throughout the guide you will find practical advice. Whether you need succinct guidance on general writing styles such as abbreviations, names, dates, alternate spellings, quotations, and punctuation, or advice specific to the style of a specific publication, this book presents the facts in a clear, concise manner.

Written for the needs of today's writers, this guide also covers specifics of writing electronic articles, including hyperlinks, tables, images, and formatting.
