MyCanvas is a self-publishing program that enables Ancestry.com members to incorporate some of their information from their online trees to Family History Books and Family History Posters. Please note that we don't offer layouts that display everyone and everything from your Ancestry Trees.

You may add more generations to your Family History Book until you have put in the number of generations you would like displayed or until it has reached its max number of pages, whichever comes first. Each book includes a minimum of 20 pages, but you can add up to 350 pages.

When visiting the Family History Book page, you will see three cover options. The base price for each cover will be displayed once you click on the cover type.

Cover type and base price:

•Black Leather $55.00 - with optional gold foil title

•Tan Leather $55.00 - with optional gold foil title

•Custom Cover $40.00 - with option to customize title

The cost of the books will vary, depending on the cover you select and the number of pages your book ends with. The base price includes the first 20 pages, but you can easily add up to 350 pages - additional pages $0.98 each.
