Barry's Relatively Speaking: The Purchasing of a Book
Posted on Jul 23, 2012
Barry's Relatively Speaking shares the personal experiences and stories of genealogists found in the Everton Genealogical Helper Magazine collection on MyGenShare.com. G. Cambridge shares the following experience.
In searching for history on my ggggrandfather who served in the Revolutionary War, I had Information that he was listed in History of Townsend, Massachusetts. I ordered the book from Charles E. Tuttle Co. Upon its arrival I turned to page 329 and 330 and much to
my surprise there was a clipping from the Turner's Public Spirit published Saturday 29 December 1883. It was a Biographical Sketch of my Grandfather.
The good soul that owned the book before me had pasted this article in the book and It was in perfect shape. To say the least, you'll never know how happy I was that, that book fell into my hands. That purchase was worth Its weight in gold.
