BOOKS, BOOKS, BOOKS

This section is being added after several individuals requested it. Not too many of us can afford to buy every Genealogy book we would like to but often there are bits of information that could be useful. If you have a book or books that you are willing to do look-ups from please e-mail me and I will add you and the titles you own to the list. If more than one person lists the same book it will spread out the queries more.

To those of you who request a look-up, please be patient, most of us have limited time and many of the books are not indexed. Please don't request massive amounts of information from any individual or things like everything on X Surname in Y book. If you keep your requests specific and short you are much more likely to get a reply.
