Students review
ancestry in book
By Scott Starnes '
Of The Print
Positive vibes and
hearted determination enabled
28 College students, two illus­
trators and their editor to pub­
lish their recent book "Leaves
from Family Trees".
The 28 authors of the book
were students in Elizabeth Ry­
an's community education writ­
ing family history class. There
was a great deal of interest gen­
erated amongst each student
concerning their personal ex­
periences and family hand-me-
down experiences, said Marcia
Baisch, College continuing edu­
cation assistant.
"The book is basically a bi­
centennial tribute which reflects
each author's personal historical
experiences and
which may have occurred dur­
ing their past family's
times," she said.
"The book
covers approximately 200 years
Baisch said that Ryan orga­
nized the group of authors and
acted as their editor.
"The students really got into
writing the book feeling that
they could use their compiled
knowledge as a positive and con­
structive contribution for the
surrounding area," Baisch said.
The group of authors is com­
prised mostly of elderly stu­
dents from the local area and
from Rose VillaVraj Milwaukie
retirement center, Baisch said.
"The class was held at Rose

"It cost the students $2,600
for typesetting, paste up and
printing procedures. Much of
the money needed for publishing
expenditures was donated by
the authors and their families,"
Baisch said.
After the book sells and pays
for itself in terms of publishing
expenses, any additional profit
from the book will be given to
the College, Baisch said.
"When these students took on
this operation, they had no de­
sire to make the publication a
personal profit endeavor. They
have no desire or intention to
collect the royalties personally
received from the book," Baisch
