Steve Garton Genealogy
welcome to our online shop where you will find a selection of old books & directories on cd. there are currently 277 titles in our catalogue.
old directories in particular are an important research aid for genealogists & historians, but as time goes by it is becoming more difficult to find good copies, and when they are available the cost is usually prohibitive for most people.
our policy is to purchase old books & directories and to produce from them good quality pdf images, which we offer for sale on cd-rom at reasonable prices.
since late October 2004 we have been scanning books & directories using an OpticBook 3600 Scanner in greyscale at 300 dpi and above, this allows us to create good quality images which are then converted to pdf files.
click here to view a sample of an image as it will appear on a CD (this is a pdf file so will only open if you have an Acrobat reader installed on your pc). You will need to use the Back Button in your browser after viewing the sample page in order to return here.
the sample page is from Bulmers 1890 North Yorkshire Directory.
