WHERE to find good genealogy books

People are always asking me WHERE to find genealogy books for their personal collections or holiday gift giving. Unfortunately the brick & mortar bookstores have only a handful of titles. Whenever there is a genealogy conference, we usually pour over the booksellers' wares to find relevant titles. As I discovered when shopping a few years back at a conference in Nashville with my friend Audrey, it helps to bring along a suitcase with wheels!

Ol' Myrt just received word that our friends at HERITAGE BOOKS are making your holiday shopping a little bit easier. Owner Craig R. Scott, CG writes "Heritage Books announces it annual Starlight Shopping Sale. 20% off all in stock inventory at The sale as started, do not miss this opportunity to purchase your genealogy books. If there is a book that you are looking for from a major genealogy publisher check with us by phone at 800 876-6103 to see if we have it in stock. We just might. With over 6,000 titles in stock, over 2,800 published by Heritage Books it is likely that there will be something of interest for everyone."

You'll get a chance to view many Heritage Books titles and hear from Craig Scott speak about "Locating your Revolutionary War Ancestor" at's St. George 2008 Genealogy & Family History Expo sponsored by FamilySearch,,,,,, Generation Maps, DearMYRTLE, and
