A GUIDE TO EDITING AND PUBLISHING FAMILY MANUSCRIPTS by Robert Root is online at the Clarke Historical Library at Central Michigan University.
Mr. Root's guide evolved from his experience of editing a diary and the eventual realization that the diarist had been incorrectly identified. The finished product is "Time by moments steals away": the 1848 journal of Ruth Douglass By Robert L. Root, Ruth Douglass.
James Cameron, Late Of New York
