SPOTLIGHT: Heritage Books

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.

HB has a simply marvelous collection of genealogy books, with over 3,000 titles in print. 30% off the regular price of select titles on a first come, first served basis since quantities are limited. Phone orders only: Toll-free: 1-800-876-6103 / Local: (231) 537-4021.

Representative FOREIGN & ETHNIC titles include:
  • Who Were Those Celts?: The German French Swiss Italian Scottish Welsh English Irish American Connection
  • Fragmenta Genealogica (multiple volumes)
  • Visitation of England and Wales Notes (multiple volumes)
  • The Parish Registers of Gulval (Alias Lanisley) in the County of Cornwall [England], 1598-1812
