Many of you know my Dad passed away recently. This means that I will most likely be moving in the next couple of months. I’ve got a lifetime of junk to go through.
One of my dilemmas has been what to keep when it comes to my genealogy stuff. It’s taken me some time to decide what’s necessary and what is not. My genealogy research binders are the most important thing to me and they go where I go.
Because of this, I have decided to sell some of my genealogy books. It’ll be hard parting with them, but I will really need the shelf space for my genealogy research binders. I could also use a little extra money. So, my lack of shelf space can be your gain!
I am listing all the books that are for sale below. It includes genealogy, writing, and history books. Some books cover Hawaii, California, and Ireland. Some are hard to find. All are of interest to the family genealogists.

PLEASE DO NOT CONTACT ME VIA EMAIL OR BLOG COMMENTS IF YOU WANT TO BUY ANY OF THESE BOOKS. I will answer questions left in the comments of this blog if you would like more detailed information about a book, but I will not be doing any person to person sales outside of the half.com website. It would complicate things too much. A book could be sold through half.com while we are working out our transaction and then I would have a mess.
I will respond if you have a question about any of the books via my Half.com seller feedback page. However, I will not respond to request to purchase these books outside of half.com as it will only complicate things.

Thanks for looking over the list. I hope to find good homes for all these books before the move.
