About Our CDs
Many of our CDs are composed of collections of
multiple texts and documents concentrating on specific regions or subject

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

researchers as possible.
