Writing Family History Books
In the last two years, I have attempted to gather information I have about a branch in my family.
I started by writing a factual book, with proper bibliography. But then some family members found it a bit too academic and suggested a more creative approach.
So last year, I started a biographical novel on my great-grandfather's life. It's still a work in progress, and I find that I need to go back and forth between the two book projects whenever I find new information, so I can document it properly first, and then see how I can influence the novel to incorporate the new details.

Added info on old Paris streets on Wikipedia
A couple of ancestors of mine purchased land in Paris in the 1860s and sold it in plots in the years that followed. These plots became a street, named after the owners.
I added info on Wikipedia 🇫🇷 about that street and adjacent streets allowing to access the plots, as per the notary documents I have been studying.
