There’s a big difference between one’s personal history and a compiled genealogy.
Personal historians rely on their recollection of events and use photos to illustrate their narrative.
Genealogists rely on sound research methodologies and use info from original record sets to explain their lineage conclusions.
To satisfy not only the personal history side of one's story, how about writing a sequel reflecting the compiled genealogy findings this far? This would include documents and so-called proof arguments that trace one's lineage.
Publishing a "book" in digital or hard copy is often listed as a genealogist's goal. Daunting at best. Maybe it's good to break the job into two parts - a personal history and a compiled genealogy.
