Listed below are some of the genealogy related books that I have in my possession.  I am always happy to do any "look-ups" for people given time. Just keep in mind it may take a couple of days as I travel very frequently.  Just drop me an e-mail with your request.

BOOKS/DOCUMENTS I AM LOOKING FOR AND NEED:

If you are selling any of the books listed below, please contact me.

  1. The Lankford's & Langford's of Virginia. Bruce Montgomery Edwards.  1987. Montgomery Publishing Co. 492 Pages. (Yes I know there are some inaccuracies in this publication, but I would still like to review it and validate some items).

In case you are wondering (and folks do believe it or not), in the unlikely event of my demise, my entire genealogy book collection will be donated to the Kentucky Genealogical Society for safe keeping.  Kentucky is where my deepest roots stem from for multiple generations.
