    >>Revision #2 June 20+, 2003<<                    



I am scaling down my library and converting book space into CD space.  My days of “doing libraries, courthouses and cemeteries” are over, and this way I can carry on my research from the comfort of home.  Because of this, I have quite a few genealogy and history books for sale.  There are a few recent ones, but most are much older and a lot are no longer in print.  I price them based on what the same book in comparable condition sells for + shipping and handling (and insurance, in the case of the more valuable ones).  Some are signed by the author.  All of this will be noted in the description.  All prices listed include s/h costs. Sold on first come/first serve basis.  Half of the price (non-refundable) will hold the book for you for two weeks.


I am listing them here, but if you are interested in purchasing or need more information, PLEASE NOTIFY ME PRIVATELY . 

To avoid error, please cut and paste book number and all info about the book you are ordering. 


      ******If you have ordered from me before, please note that the numbers of the books have changed due to re-arranging by category.*******
