Have you looked into SGA5, section VII? – Konrad Voelkel Jun 30 '13 at 9:48
Thanks Konrad. Is this available online? – memon Jun 30 '13 at 9:57
googling immediately gives you this: – Konrad Voelkel Jun 30 '13 at 10:05
or SGA7, vol. II, p.258. – shenghao Jun 30 '13 at 10:46
Another alternative: Griffiths and Harris, Chapter 4, Section 6, subsection "Blowing Up Submanifolds." – Charles Staats Jun 30 '13 at 18:45
