Kindred Voices – on pre-pub sale with FREE Immediate PDF ebook download


My friend, Geoff Rasmussen, just wrote a new book entitled Kindred Voices. Geoff is probably best known for his work with Legacy, hosting their weekly webinars. However, he’s a great writer, having written a number of books including the popular Digital Imaging Essentials. We are taking pre-publication orders for the full-color soft-cover book, with a substantial discount and a FREE IMMEDIATE PDF download of the eBook of the same if ordered by February 27, 2015!

PLEASE NOTE that the paperback book SHIPS in March – probably toward the end of the month. The order confirmation will say toexpect it to be shipped within 72 hours, but that’s a line added by the computer dealing with daily sales of in-stock books. Ignore it, and expect it in late March.

In Kindred Voices – Listening For Our Ancestors, Geoff takes on the not-uncontroversial topic of how our ancestors themselves may be helping us make genealogical discoveries. This is a topic previousy dealt with by Hank Jones in his Psychic Roots, and More Psychic Roots volumes. Ann Bradshaw later wrote True Miracles with Genealogy: Help from Beyond the Veil, and True Miracles with Genealogy: Volume Two. Geoff’s new volume is fascinating. He sent me a PDF review copy a few days ago, and although super-busy, I sat down and read the entire book cover to cover – something I seldom do.

Most genealogists will tell you that every now and then, seemingly unexplainable things happen. Call it what you will. A miracle? psychic phenomena, or serendipity? Seemingly unexplainable things happen. In Kindred Voices, Geoff lays out a case to show that genealogists often receive research help from their long-deceased ancestors themselves. Many fascinating examples, taken from his own life experiences, are given. Did you ever wonder why those of the Mormon faith do genealogy? Geoff gives the best explanation for it that I’ve ever read.

Another good friend, Megan Smolenyak, put it this way, “If you didn’t believe it before now, Geoff Rasmussen will convince you that our ancestors want to be found as much as we want to find them. Whether you’re new to genealogy or struggling with a brick wall in your research, Kindred Voices will inspire you in your quest to reach out to those who came before us. C’mon, they’re waiting for you!”

The following is from Legacy’s website:

Genealogists hear dead people…

[…pause for dramatic effect…]

The voices of our ancestors awake when our search for them begins. Most often we feel their voices – in our minds and in our hearts – as research ideas, promptings, and intuitions on where to find them. Yet sometimes, as our hearts turn toward theirs, their heaven-sent communications can be heard with our earthly ears. These voices – those of our ancestors – are the evidence of their hearts having turned towards ours.

The serendipitous encounters with genealogical voices that Geoff Rasmussen tells in Kindred Voices are true stories. Readers will be stirred by the reality of our ancestors’ interventions in our search for them. You will be inspired to either begin your search or to receive the hope you need to continue your quest. Our ancestors speak to us; are we listening?

Every year new publications enter public domain. That means their intellectual property rights have expired or are not applicable any longer.

The content of these works becomes available for public use. Anyone is free to use it – but also to reuse it, for instance publish a new edition. Therefore you may find in major ebookstores (Kindle, Nook, Kobo, iBook Store, or Google Play Books) public domain books that are not free.

My advice is that if you want to get an ebook version of a classic novel like Pride and Prejudice, you should first check out the sites listed below. Browsing the ebookstore where you have an account is a next step, if you don’t find what you’re looking for.
