SPOTLIGHT: Genealogical Publishing Company

AS I mentioned yesterday, most brick and mortar bookstores do not carry a broad variety of genealogy books, so we tend to order them online or purchase them at national or regional genealogy conferences. I’ve had several requests from newbies to explain which online stores are reasonable and trustworthy. Today Ol’ Myrt here wishes to spotlight one of the major booksellers.

GPC publishes over 2,000 genealogy books and compact discs featuring colonial genealogy, Irish genealogy, immigration, royal ancestry, family history, and genealogy methods and sources. is the online home of Genealogical Publishing Company, Clearfield Company, and Gateway Press.

GENERAL reference titles from this publisher include:
