One part of being a good genealogist is having a collection of resources. While there is plenty available online, there is something special about seeing the name of an ancestor in a printed work. I have a small but growing collection of printed genealogy books. I'll be listing them here.

Another part of being a good genealogist is the willingness to share. I've made countless discoveries about my family because of the generosity of others.

Include here are some very specific areas of Kentucky, Montana, Pennsylvania, Ireland, and more. Contact me for a free index search.
