About Our CDs
Many of our CDs are composed of collections
of multiple texts and documents concentrating on specific regions or subject
areas. Many contain 5, 10 or more separate publications. Each CD is
truly a reference BONANZA to the home historian with thousands of pages
of research information. The age of
most of these text make them inaccessible to the average researcher. Naturally
their scarcity and fragility makes them very expensive to acquire hence
often kept under lock and key in an effort to preserve them. Unfortunately
this also makes them unavailable for public view. Our CDs are produced
by scanning the actual pages of the original text making them not only
excellent resources but archival copies available for future generations.
