I have two goals this year. One of them is completing a family heritage book

I need help! I am planning my family heritage book that I will begin after tax season. I inherited the family history documents and pictures (many of which I never knew existed) after my mother passed away. I’ve got information that backs up 5 generations from me and pictures of all my great grandparents on both my mothers and father’s side! I would love to have the surnames of myself and my husband embossed on the cover. I would need all the pictures and documents my mother-in-law has to complete the book. She has told me several times she has all of it but every time I ask to see it, it is never produced. It’s been years and I still never have seen it. They are in their 90s so I think they will surface when her four sons have to clean out the house. I don’t think anyone else will want to do this because it will take more time than money to complete their heritage book, but it will cost a lot of money as well. How do I get her to let loose of all this information because I want to complete it this year!
