Question: My brothers and sisters would like me to write a autobiography about our lives as children. What we went through and how we made it! Just want to write and give it to our children and grandchildren as a inspiration to never give up. We are talking maybe thirty copies with two or three pictures.

Answer: Sounds like you want to self-publish, using a print-on-demand service (which is less expensive when printing a small number of copies). There are a lot of firms in this business. (I've heard good things about Lulu, though I've never dealt with them myself.) Whichever company you use, research them first.

Best of luck with that project.
