About Our CDs
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.
