Bates History of
the Pennsylvania Volunteers is the most comprehensive set of volumes ever
created on the men from Pennsylvania who served in the Civil War. If you
have an ancestor who served in PA in this time period, you will find him
here. Each regiment listing includes a history of the unit broken down
into individual companies and soldiers. Information includes name, rank,
date of muster into service, length of service, and remarks that can include
discharge date, transfers, desertions, promotions with date, death date
and place, burial date and place, and many other tidbits valuable to the
genealogical researcher. Also includes all colored regiments.
The main body of the volumes consists of lists of
the volunteers arranged by unit with details; name, date of muster and other
salient information. Without doubt, a striking five-volume set and a important
contribution to the literature of the American Civil War.
disks contain images of every page of the original five volumes of one of
the most valuable genealogy resources available. Reprints of these books
will cost hundreds of dollars and the complete set (if found available) much
more. In contrast, the CD version weighs one-half ounce, is easier to search
and is available for a far more affordable price.

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. If you could find
a hard copy of any of these books it would cost hundreds of dollars - individually worth many times the
cost of a CD. The average
cost of a single CD, containing our "theme or regional" based collections
has been kept affordable in an effort to make this information obtainable
to as many home researchers as possible.
Our CDs have become the ultimate
research tool. Having a copy on hand allows research at your leisure and
your schedule while in the comfort of your home. Additionally you can still
print individual or groups of pages as you need directly from your CDs.
