Subject: Helpful Books?
Date: Thu, 10 Feb 2000 20:32:39 -0500
I'm looking over my most well-used mailing lists (Cornwall and Devon in
England; Durham County in Ontario, Canada) and I have some bookish ;^)
questions for all three groups:
Which kind of books (if any) have been the most helpful in your genealogy
and/or family history search and where or how did you find them? Which kind
of books have been the least helpful?
Specifically, have many of you found local history or family history books
which applied to you? And how difficult was it to find these? And how much
did they really help you (if at all) and in which way(s)? Or were they
entertaining in some way, even if not specifically helpful???
Cheers, Astrid -
p.s. Starting to think that a week in April (if I can swing it) might be a
nice time to be in Devon and Cornwall. Thanks again for all those who gave
help and suggestions for a trip there!
Interested in families of Cornwall and North Devon in England, 1800s;
