The Story of the
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 for
those 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
