We are principally a “how to” publishing company, as we publish and sell many books on how to do genealogy research, but not a lot of books on specific families. We do not want to do your research for you. We want to teach and guide you in your own search. Yes, we do publish a few books of “Lists,” if they happen to be of such importance that we just can’t contain ourselves otherwise. And we have others either because we bought the remainder available of a title or because the publisher is drop-shipping them for us. We have a goal that if a book exists from one of the major genealogy publishers, we want you to find it on http://www.familyrootspublishing.com/ at a great price.
In Pt. 1, I wrote about how the Categories are laid out at the Family Roots Publishing website. In this post, I would like to begin to tell you about what the main Categories are supposed to mean. I’m only dealing with categories Africa through Computer in this blog.
Categories – Africa to Computer
Top of the list. Supposed to have books and maps covering the continent of Africa. Only a few countries are covered, because not enough books are available on the subject!
Asia & Australia
Another area not written about a lot by American publishers. Only Australia and Russia are extensively covered. Russia is also covered under subcategory of “Europe.” Note Russia being on two continents means there are two lists – meaning there may be different products in each list. (Russia/Russia,) While writing this, I found two more products under the Europe category than under the Asia category.
This is where you will find the lists of authors. Because there are so many we had to make Subcategories based on the first letter of their last name.
Note: both of these authors also have further Subcategories.
“Leland K. Meitzler – Magazine Articles” for Leland and for Dollarhide; whose name we like shorten 🙂
- $hide Gen Bulletins
- $hide Insta-Guides
- $hide Mag Articles, covering magazine articles other than Gen. Bulletin
- $hide Map Packets
- All $hide Titles
- State Name Lists
Books, products and maps covering Canada:
Articles, books and inspirational stories written about some prominent researchers and author’s own searches. All true stories. Fiction is covered elsewhere by Genealogy Related Novels and Humor.
Central America & Caribbean
books and maps covering Central America & the Caribbean. Most countries are listed, but there is not enough written on the subject. Many of the early explorers and settlers of North America first came through South and/or Central America, so if you have really early (1500-1700) people coming to North America, its worth checking out.
A simple sounding Category, with simple sounding Subcategories.
- CDs Genealogists only a few years ago purchased hundreds of CDs for their personal use, and there are still many available that run on current operating systems.
- Computer Software It’s hard to do genealogy these days without a genealogy software and we sell some of the best.
- Software – Magazine Articles
- Family Tree Maker
- Master Genealogist
- Photoshop Elements
Most documents that we need today are at often referenced on the internet. These sites can help you in your search and this category covers products for using them.
