Do you have easy access to genealogical resources that you can share?

Frequently, I'll only need a tiny paragraph from a resource and it seems silly to buy the entire book.  Anyone interested in sharing resources? I'd like to start a resource exchange.  Idea is that anyone who would be willing to copy small paragraphs or scan pages into an email attachment would list the title, author, publishing date within this string and whenever possible add a short, couple of lines, paragraph containing the information the resource will provide.

"Scandinavian Immigrants in New York, 1630-1674." John O. Evjen. Published 1916.

This is a collection of biographical articles on Norwegian, Danish, and Swedish immigrants who settled in New York between 1630 and 1674. The biographies are based on ship passenger lists, parish records, church records, court records, and legal documents, and include information such as dates of birth, places of origin, marriages, names of children, types of occupation, and references to sources. Also contained in the book are appendices on Scandinavians in (1) Mexico and South America, 1532-1640, (2) Canada, 1619-1620, and (3) New York in the 18th century, and there is a fourth appendix on German immigrants in New York between 1630 and 1674.
This is a really great idea, Theresa, and I hope many others will also have various books, bibles, etc, that they are willing to share. Hopefully an index can be created.
"Meet the Edgertons : A Genealogy of the Edgerton Family in America from the early 1700's to 1969; Descendants of Thomas Edgerton, County Wexford, Ireland, and Sarah Stephens of Haddonfield, New Jersey."  ©1970. J. Howard Binns.

Glad to do a look-up for Edgertons and related families.

Therese, do you want to make this a page on WikiTree, under the Genealogy Help section? http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Category:Genealogy_Help

It would be awesome to have you moderating it.

Yes, I'll moderate the page; however, I'll need some basics on how to set-up and maintain it.  Please send me a detailed email.

Hi Fred, 

Hoping only to be helpful, J. Howard Binns, _Meet the Edgertons..._ (1970) is accessible online via the Family History Library Catalog. 

Click here to access the catalog entry, then see "Notes," for comment (in red), "To view a digital version of this item click ... "

I accessed this from my home 'puter and was offered the option to download the whole thing or read it online. 

Fantastic!  This is the first time I've seen anywhere it was offered online.  I'd guess the copyright wasn't renewed.  Like most family genealogies, it has a limited audience, but there are tie-ins to many other families, particularly N.C. Quakers like the Lambs and Overmans.

Hi,

My Mom had an awesome genealogical collection - mostly New England and/or Mayflower, including such classics as Pope's Pioneers and Savage's Geneological Dictionary.  She has passed on and I inherited her books.

I have some Mayflower "Silver Books", some "Great Migration"  Volumes and more.

That's great Becky!  We've started a new page under, "Help" (upper right corner of WikiTree, "Genealogy Help," and then "Genealogy Resource Exchange."  If your willing to share please send me an email with the names of the books, authors, publishing info/date and a brief paragraph about the resource.  I found mine on the web and just cut/paste so you may want to check Amazon to save you some time.
