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 friendly.
