Mastering Genealogical Proof: Printing pages from the Kindle version

DearREADERS,With today's much anticipated news that Mastering Genealogical Proof is finally available in Kindle format, you'll want advice on how to print the pages from the tablet device. Here are some suggestions from our friends at MakeUseOf: How can I print parts of a book from the Kindle app on my computer?

WHAT TO PRINT? Ol' Myrt here suggests printing 'Appendix A: Pritchett article' and 'Appendix B: McLain article.' You may consider printing chapters proving particularly challenging. For me, that would include the infamous 'Chapter 3.' All the better to take notes with my dear!

Book Description

 December 4, 2013
Mastering Genealogical Proof aims to help researchers, students, and new family historians reconstruct relationships and lives of people they cannot see. It presents content in digestible chunks. Each chapter concludes with problems providing practice for proficiently applying the chapter’s concepts. Those problems, like examples throughout the book, use real records, real research, and real issues. Answers are at the back of the book along with a glossary of technical terms and an extensive resource list.

Ol' Myrt here just ordered a copy for Cousin +Russ Worthington . Believe it or not, Amazon sent this me message: 
"We will e-mail Cousin Russ ( a gift announcement between 12:00am and 3:00am Pacific Time on December 5, 2013."
SERIOUSLY, Amazon? The whole point of digital delivery is immediate delivery!

So, DearREADERS, be aware that while I received my own copy to my Kindle App on my iPad immediately, gift copies are not delivered until off-peak hours.

Happy family tree climbing!
Myrt     :)
Your friend in genealogy.

  1. You're lucky Pat. It's almost Christmas here and I tried to "gift" some Kindle books to relatives who have a player. I was told by Amazon UK that this currently isn't possible here, and to go try the US site. Amazing planning, eh?

  2. Thank-you for letting us know about this. I really wanted this book, but the postage to NZ was more than the cost of the book. Off shopping now.

  3. Thank you for the heads up; I just ordered one.
