Motiviaton Monday: At Forty Percent Off, What Are You Waiting For?

If you don’t have Professional Genealogy edited by Elizabeth Shown Mills in your library, today is the day to add it.  The publisher, Genealogical.com is offering at 40%. Even if you don’t plan on being a Professional Genealogist, you will find lots of good information in here.  Each chapter is edited by a different person or people and will give you good background on various topics such as writing, editing and education.

You can find the link at: http://www.genealogical.com/products/Professional%20Genealogy/3844.html

You’ll also find a variety of other books on the site. One of my favorites is Genealogy as a Pastime and Profession by Donald Lines Jacobus. It’s not 40% off, but it is a great book. It’s an easy and entertaining read. It is a how-to book written long before the internet and like me you may some inspiration in the pages.

Happy Reading!
