Book Description

Researchers and libraries now have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to purchase a reprint of the greatest reference work in all of American genealogy, Marian Kaminkow's Genealogies in the Library of Congress (2 vols.), with its two Supplements and the renowned Complement to Genealogies in the Library of Congress.

Together these five massive volumes comprise the most comprehensive listing of family histories available. Answering the all-important question as to what family histories have already been written, they represent the first step in genealogical research. Indeed, since their first appearance they have been hailed as the true starting point in genealogical research, the proof of which is manifested in the fact that they provide details on over 50,000 family histories, published and unpublished, in genealogical books as well as non-genealogical books, in periodicals as well as monographs, in English as well as other languages, in the Library of Congress as well as other major libraries! So before undertaking your own research, check here to see what has already been written.

Even the Internet can't match the wealth of information found in this work, and with the uneven, almost random, listings of family histories found on one web site after another, this work is seen not only as a starting point in genealogical research but a refuge! We are therefore delighted to make this limited reprint edition available to those who require a systematic and comprehensive bibliography of family histories.

The complete five-volume set of Genealogies in the Library of Congress, consisting of the two-volume base set of Genealogies, the two Supplements, and the Complement, is available at a savings of $35 below the price of the same volumes when purchased individually. Since some researchers and libraries may already own one or more of the titles in this famous series, we are making the books available on a title-by-title basis, as well. See below for descriptions of the component volumes in the set.

Reproduced here as a set, these five volumes originally were published throughout the 1970s and early 1980s.
