How many of you search for family history books about your family/genealogy on Amazon or google books? Are you successful?
You may be missing an often overlooked source of family history books: local genealogical and historical societies.
These local societies often self publish books pertaining to local history and families. For example, the Halifax County Historical Society has Yesterday- Gone Forever by Faye Tuck on their website. A fabulous book that contains information about many families of Halifax County, VA. This book is not found on Amazon.
So…..if you are looking for information on your family or specific to your ancestors’ county/location, be sure to check out the local historical and genealogical societies!
