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. Giving you the best of both old and
new research techniques. Unless otherwise noted most pdf
Files are now searchable. Searchable pdf
files allow single or multiple file
searches with one search request.
Our CDs are designed
to be easily used even
new to computers.
The opening menu, which opens much like
a web page (utilizing your browser and a link like navigation system),
is easily navigated and extremely user friendly.
