Books and Forms for Family Historians

Save 15% at Genealogical Publishing Company during the Weekend Sale on Southern Reference Books! Welcome to our annual President’s Day Sale! "Prior to 1850, most southern states of the U.S. (the future Confederacy) did not maintain official public records. Although federal censuses, military rosters, marriage bonds, Bible records, and other miscellany do exist for the colonial and ante bellum eras of the American South, researchers have had to travel far and wide to compile genealogies or source record collections devoted to these families. We can appreciate the determination that went into the production of such books even more when we consider the disadvantages (compared to the prevalence of official records for New England, for example), these authors operated under. For the next four days, you can acquire one or more of the best genealogical collections for early southern families, and save 15% on the retail price.

  • Amazon: Save 63% on pre-order Kindle version of The Lost Family: How DNA Testing Is Upending Who We Are “A deeply reported look at the rise of home genetic testing and the seismic shock it has had on individual lives. You swab your cheek or spit into a vial, then send it away to a lab somewhere. Weeks later you get a report that might tell you where your ancestors came from or if you carry certain genetic risks. Or the report could reveal a long-buried family secret and upend your entire sense of identity. Soon a lark becomes an obsession, an incessant desire to find answers to questions at the core of your being, like “Who am I?” and “Where did I come from?” Welcome to the age of home genetic testing. In The Lost Family, journalist Libby Copeland investigates what happens when we embark on a vast social experiment with little understanding of the ramifications. Copeland explores the culture of genealogy buffs, the science of DNA, and the business of companies like Ancestry and 23andMe, all while tracing the story of one woman, her unusual results, and a relentless methodical drive for answers that becomes a thoroughly modern genetic detective story.” Print version regularly $27, pre-order the Kindle version for just $9.99!
