Subject: [VA-GGS] Southern Historical Press Shame-Genealogy Books
Date: Fri, 25 Jun 2010 17:37:33 -0400
In 2006 I transcribed two books on Pittsylvania County, VA- "Land Tax List
of Pittsylvania County 1782-1802" and "Abstracts of Pittsylvania County, VaA
Deeds 1783-1790"- which were published by Southern Historical Press in
Greenville, SC. My contract called for me to receive $750.00 per book- a
one time payment.
LaBruce Lucas, the owner of Southern Historical Press, has only paid me for
one of the books even though I have called him many times over the last four
years. If you are interested in publishing a genealogy book, I would
suggest that you not consider Southern Historical Press.
Therefore I am going to sell the CDs of the books. I would be interested if
any of you have any ideas on marketing these CDs. I will probably also put
it on Amazon and Ebay. You can contact me privately at
I am working on several other Pittsylvania Books but haven't had the heart
to really get back into it. Thanks for listening.
