If you follow Eastman's Online Genealogy Newsletter, you probably saw his recent post entitled, Genealogy Publishing Company Adds A New Online Catalog Solely For Genealogy eBooks. In it he talks about a new ebook store just for genealogists at Genealogical.com.
One of the advantages of buying ebooks is that they are usually less expensive than their physical cousins and, of course, you don't have to wait for it to be delivered. According to Dick Eastman,
At Genealogical.com you can:
- Search for books by locality, subject, time period, and other categories.
- Look inside the book to view pages from the publication and search within the text.
- Buy the book easily with just one click, registering with Google, Facebook, or your e-mail.
- Read the book instantly on our site or download it to the eReader of your choice.
- Cut and paste content directly from the book to your genealogical project, without having to retype the information.
I particularly like the last item as most ebooks you purchase through Amazon.com or other sellers preclude you from copying/pasting text due to copyright restrictions.
I highly recommend you read Dick Eastman's post and check out this new genealogy library. The more you read, the more you will know!
