Genealogy Books -, parent of the Genealogical Publishing Company and its affiliate, Clearfield Company, is the leading publisher of books and CDs on genealogy and family history. Over a period of more than fifty years the GPC/Clearfield genealogy collection has grown to 2,000 titles featuring a wide range of topics such as genealogy, immigration, royal ancestry, and county history. Our genealogy books are authoritative and timeless, found in every library in the country with a genealogy and family history collection, and are widely respected by amateur and professional genealogy researchers alike.

Our books and CDs cover the entire range of American genealogy, but one of our principal areas of strength is found in our collections of individual family histories. Typical of such collections, and among the best known in American genealogy, is Donald Lines Jacobus' Families of Ancient New Haven, a three-volume work that covers every family in pre-Revolutionary New Haven, Connecticut. Similarly, Robert Barnes's British Roots of Maryland Families, establishes the origins of hundreds of pre-eighteenth-century Maryland families, much like our comprehensive collection of magazine articles printed in the three volumes of Genealogies of Pennsylvania Families.

Most recently we have added Frederick Dorman's acclaimed Adventurers of Purse and Person, Virginia, 1607-1624/5 (3 vols.) to this dynamic list of family history compendia. The Dorman work documents six generations of the founding families of Virginia and is considered the most important work ever to appear on Virginia genealogy.

In addition, we publish hundreds of volumes of genealogy source records, most of which go all the way back to the colonial period of American history. These books save researchers the trouble of traveling to faraway repositories in search of materials on specialized topics such as immigration and royal and noble ancestry, while also supplying information on the more conventional records of birth, marriage, and death, will and probate records, land records, and census records. Relying on skilled researchers to transcribe and index these records, we then publish them in book form and on CD, making millions of records readily available. Many of these publications are the pre-eminent works in their field. Books such as Clarence A. Torrey's New England Marriages Prior to 1700 and Bobby Moss's Roster of South Carolina Patriots in the American Revolution are prime examples of the quality of our published source records; while our latest CDs, including Jacqueline Ricker's Ricker Compilation of Vital Records of Early Connecticut and John W. Pritchett's Southside Virginia Genealogies, offer unprecedented opportunities to search in vast collections of source records and family histories.

You'll find still other types of books on our Genealogy Essentials page as well as our Genealogy for Beginners page, notably our guidebooks on German, English, Irish, Scottish, Italian, Polish, and Hispanic genealogy, as well as manuals and textbooks featuring both traditional instruction in genealogy methodology and contemporary instruction in the use of the Internet for genealogical research. For those seeking instruction in genealogy on an academic or professional level, we offer the works of the accomplished genealogist Elizabeth Shown Mills: Evidence! Citation & Analysis for the Family Historian; Professional Genealogy: A Manual for Researchers, Writers, Editors, Lecturers, and Librarians; and the definitive source citation guide Evidence Explained. Finally, recent "how-to" books in our list include the elementary school-level teaching guide Roots for Kids, by Susan Beller, the aptly named Complete Beginner's Guide to Genealogy, the Internet, and Your Genealogy Computer Program, by Karen Clifford, and William Dollarhide's brief but brilliant tutorial Getting Started in Genealogy ONLINE.
