Have you ever wanted to publish your genealogical research and have not known where to begin? Attendees will learn the basics of self-publication, from manuscript to finished product.

L. Ray Sears III is a licensed professional engineer with service in the Army Signal Corps, at Halliburton Company and with Northrop Grumman at Tinker Air Force Base, Oklahoma. He has been researching the Sears family history since 1976 and published the second edition of the Sears Genealogical Catalogue in 2019. His family has lived on Quivet Neck in East Dennis since the original Richard Sears arrived in 1639. He is a member of the Cape Cod Chapter of the Sons of the American Revolution, recognizing the service of his 3rd great-grandfather, Elkanah Sears of Quivet Neck. For eleven years, Ray has been the editor of many Cape Cod Genealogical Society publications. His blog, Cape Cod Folks focuses on his work on Cape Cod ancestors. His book Let Go To Listen is a compilation of ruminations about Cape Cod that have been published over the past twenty years.
