Forty Five New Books Available for Purchase

We can't speak about anywhere else in the country, but here in Connecticut the weather has been waffling between major thunderstorms and humidity so oppressive you can barely breathe!  Precisely the type of weather that makes you want to hole up in your home or air conditioned public building of your choice.  While you do your best to the heat why not crack open a new book?

Forty-five new books from all areas of interest are now available for purchase through the Godfrey Book Sale!  Take a peek at our inventory and see if anything strikes your fancy.  Don't wait!  Some of the new books we've added to our ebay store have already been sold!

Genealogies- Now including the genealogy of the Eaton family of Nova Scotia, the genealogy of Richard Spelman of Middletown, CT, biographies of Simeon North, the first pistol maker in America, and the second book of Mark Mathabane's autobiography, Kaffir Boy in America, among others.


Genealogy Resource Books - If you're looking for guidance in your research we almost guarantee you'll find it in one of the books here!  Newly available are American Surnames and The History of the Family, A Record Book, a beautiful book where you can record your own family history!
 
Connecticut-From broad genealogical publications like issues of the Connecticut Nutmegger to more specific works like town histories and a selection of yearbooks from various schools around the state, if you're researching or interested in Connecticut in any way don't pass up these amazing books!

New England-Like the Connecticut section of our book sale, our inventory of New England books includes issues of genealogical and historical publications like the New England Historical Genealogical Society down to town histories and other more focused works from around the region.  New to this section are

Historical Data Relating to Countries Cities and Towns in Massachusetts, A Sketch of the History of Newbury, Newburyport and West Newbury, and others!



States Other Than New England & United States History-While these two sections may not have quite as many new books in the inventory, what they do have is not something to be ignored!  With vital records, town histories, and general histories from all of the United States, these books contain a bevy of information for any researcher looking into the United States as a whole or any non New England Region.

Military- Again, not too many new books added here.  Even so, our inventory of books on the United States military remains strong, with works regarding the Revolutionary War, Spanish American War, Civil War, as well as World War I and II.

Immigration and International-  We have some really fantastic offerings for anyone interested in their foreign ancestors or histories!  New books on Irish history and Canadian genealogy like The History of Ulster and
In Search of Your Roots: A Guide for Canadians Seeking Their Ancestors, among many others, may be just what you're looking for.  We have an especially interesting selection of books relating to Canada and Canadian genealogy research.

Follow the links above to navigate to the respective sales list for each category.  If you would like to purchase a book you may do so online through ebay (only available for certain books) or over the phone by calling the Godfrey at (860) 346-4375
