Michigan Genealogy

Over a year ago, I wrote a post titled “Recommended Reading for Michigan Research” and I mentioned the following book:

Whenever you do research for a certain location, it’s vital that you understand how records were gathered, when record-keeping began, and where the records are now archived. Unless you know this, you will be stumped as to why your ancestors may be missing on key records, or where to find them. Although I had been extensively researching in Michigan vital, cemetery, and census records for over ten years, including using resources such as Ancestry’s Red Book and FamilySearch’s Research Guide for Michigan, it wasn’t until I read this book that I began to comprehend why I was hitting brick walls. Using this resource has helped me find alternative records and discover more about my ancestry that I would not have otherwise been able to do.

If you have ancestors from Michigan, you must have this book in your home library…AND it’s on sale (26% off!) until 11:59 PM, EDT, Monday, June 30.

Great End-of-Year Deals at Genealogical Publishing Company

This is the time of year when you can find all kinds of wonderful special offers on subscriptions to genealogical database websites or discounts on books and CDs at genealogical publications suppliers. One such place is Genealogical Publishing Company’s website, www.genealogical.com.

Right now, they have three special deals going on. The first is an extension of their 50% Off Holiday Sale until 11:59 PM EST, Thursday, December 27, 2007:

The 34 reference books in this sale run the gamut of our collection, from lineage society indexes, passenger lists, military records, vital records of all kinds, probate and land records, how-to books, and more. Geographical coverage includes many of the U.S. states east of the Mississippi, Canada, the British Isles, Germany, and the Caribbean.

Although some of these sale items are now out of stock, you can still choose from many others in the waning moments of this terrific offer.

The next special is the 2007 Liquidation Sale of books and CDs which will remain in effect until 11:59 PM EST on Thursday, January 3, 2008:

Each year we drop prices drastically on scores of books in order to clear out our inventory…you will find over 50 books or multi-volume sets that, with very few exceptions, have been reduced in price by at least 50%. As a matter of fact, the majority of our liquidation books are on sale for between 67-75% below retail.

This year you will also find a number of CD-ROM titles in the Liquidation Sale. CDs are always a good buy since they contain the page images of multiple books yet sell for as little as one-fourth the price of the books when purchased on their own. Since we have further reduced the prices on the following CDs by as much as 67%, you will be paying only pennies for the digital equivalent of some of these imaged books.

Lastly, GPC offers its Warehouse Book Sale everyday of the year. These are books offered at permanent discounts of at least 40% and often 50% or more, to make room for new products.
