Welcome to the Genealogy Digital Bookshelf website. As I state on the front page, I present this site in hopes that others find it of use. The site is designed to organize books that I locate at the Internet Archive – a collection of electronic texts, music & other audio, and moving images. New books are constantly being added, many with genealogical value.
This site is organized into major topic categories. Within each category, links to e-texts are categorized by state and then county. The only state not represented here is North Carolina for I started a separate Digital Bookshelf for the NCGenWeb project that you may find here.
My inspiration for this overall approach for this site came from two sources:
- Jennifer Regan’s Google Books Genealogy Index or GooBooGeni – Jennifer organizes full-text books located at the Google Books website
- Joe Beine’s Death Indexes – Joe organizes links to online death indexes across the country
I am always open to suggestions and contributions so please contact me (check links on the sidebar) if you have resources to share!
