This summer we are happy to announce a significant number of new publications that could assist you in your research. For example, Michael A. Ports has delivered the first of four new installments in our series of laminated research aids, “Genealogy at a Glance.” The new one covers the state of Tennessee. Jason Kruski, the expert on Polish genealogical research in the midwestern states, and especially the city of Chicago, has produced the second edition of his textbook, and it is completely up-to-date with references to important Polish web sites, archives, newspapers, and more. The tireless Dr. David Dobson has compiled three new diminutive collections of colonial emigration records covering the people of the Leeward Islands, Irish merchant vessels to the Americas, and the Part 9 in his series of Irish Emigrants to North America.
You may also be interested to learn about two other titles that we have returned to stock.
In case you missed out on the initial printing of Professional Genealogy: Preparation, Practice & Standards (ProGen PPS), edited by Elizabeth Shown Mills and written by a new generation of genealogical educators, we are happy to report that we have replenished our supply of this extraordinary reference work. ProGen PPS is an entirely new guide to the profession of genealogy–offering fresh insights and new specialties, grounded in more-solid standards and wider experiences and applications. In twenty-six chapters and nearly 700 pages, Progen PPS is an invaluable resource for professional genealogists and students, as well as all family history researchers. “From genetic and forensic genealogy to ethics and contracts, business structures, marketing, writing, editing, and preparing books for press, ProGen PPS promises to inspire thought processes and ignite new discussions” (Billie Stone Fogarty, M. Ed. President, Association of Professional Genealogists).
Also available is A Topographical Dictionary of England. 4 Vols., by Samuel Lewis. This classic work is a reprint of the original 1831 edition, one of only two editions of the Lewis Dictionary that will lead the genealogist back to the English parishes and chapelries that are of importance in seeking probate records.
