Here’s a look at the booksellers and publishers that will be at the Government and Heritage Library Family History Fair on August 11, 2012.
From popular paperback books about the Wright brothers, legends, lighthouses, pirates, highway historical markers, and the Civil War to resources for historical and genealogical researchers, the Historical Publications Section of the Office of Archives and History offers more than 160 titles that reflect the rich variety of Tar Heel history. The section has high research and editorial standards for the books, articles, maps, and
other materials that it publishes. Make sure to visit their online store as well.
Based in Raleigh, North Carolina, Lulu Publishing offers self-publishing and book printing services for those who have written a book or are thinking of writing a book in the future. At the fair, you’ll be able to talk to them in more detail about how they can help make that happen for you. If you have a family history already written and want to put it together as a book for family members instead of it sitting on your computer or in a folder, connect with Lulu at the fair for assistance.
One of Lulu’s authors Stewart Dunaway will be at the fair promoting his North Carolina Historical Books written over the years. Discuss with him the research that he has done on the North Carolina Revolutionary War history, land and mill records, and what he has in the works for future books.
A member of the North Carolina Genealogical Society, Dr. Laura Edwards is an author and full-time genealogist. Her most recent publication, Dead or Disabled: The North Carolina Confederate Pensions 1885 Series, will be available for purchase.
