Sojourn Through Time: Resources I Own

Sojourn Through Time...

~ Resources I Own ~


As I conduct my own research I accumulate resources that may be of value to others as well. I have a list of resources currently in my possession listed below. I would be happy to do lookups for people to the extent that I can. However, please be reasonable in your requests, and provide as much detail as you can.

If you need a lot of information from any of these resources I strongly recommend that you purchase the item yourself. These are all excellent resources and we as genealogists need to support the authors/developers.
