A New Genealogy Website went Online Today: Genealogy Gophers
Are you looking for a genealogy book? More Than 40,000 digital genealogy books now fully searchable and downloadable for free at GenGophers.com. I had a chance to use the site for a while today and will say that I am impressed. I have been using Google Books, Archive.org, and numerous sources of digitized books for years. The new GenGophers web site searches genealogy books and only genealogy books, looking for the information you specify. Best of all, the site is available to all free of charge..
