About the Book
Biographical books, or bios, are detailed descriptions of a person's life. A biography is more than simply the basic facts like education, work, relationships, and death. It portrays a person's experience of major life events. A biography presents a subject's life story, emphasizing certain aspects of his or her life, and including intimate details of their experiences, which may include an analysis of their personality. Biographical works are generally non-fiction, but fictional works can also be used to portray a person's life. An in-depth form of biographical coverage is referred to as legacy writing. An authorized biography refers to a book written with the permission, cooperation, and at times, participation of the subject or the subject's heirs. An autobiography, on the other hand, is written by the person themselves, sometimes with the assistance of a collaborator or “ghostwriter”.

Genealogy is the study of families, by tracing their lineages through history. Genealogists employ oral interviews, historical records, genetic analysis, and other records to compile a database relating to a family that demonstrates kinship between its members. The results are often displayed in the form of a chart, such as a "family tree" or are presented as written narratives. Several motives shape their desire to investigate family history and origins, including the desire to establish a place for one's family in the broader historical picture, the feeling of responsibility to preserve the past for the edification of coming generations, and the satisfaction that is derived from telling what are often intricate, surprising and complex stories. Books on genealogy are often presenting the results of genealogical studies, but may also provide the raw data for genealogical research, such as parish rolls and censuses.
