Welcome to Maia's Genealogy & History Books!


Finding Tips

 Author Search:  Only searches the author field, spelling of name(s) must match.


 Title Search:  Only searches the title field, partial title will return any title with a matching string of words.  "Talbot" will return any title with the word "Talbot"; "Talbot Maryland" will return books with both "Maryland" and "Talbot"


 Description Search:  Searches the description for the words entered.  If only "Talbot" is entered the return will be "Talbot" used in the description as a family name, county, location, etc.


 Keyword Search:  Searches everywhere: Author, Title, Description, and assigned keywords and categories - this search is the most complete search.


 Categories:  Listed below and to the right or click the link on the right.  Categories are assigned during cataloging and are very broad in nature - "USA::Maryland::Talbot" will find any book that is generally about Talbot County, Maryland; but will not list a book that has a chapter on Talbot County, Maryland or a book on Ohio with a reference of a migration from Talbot County.   A "Description" or "Keyword" search will give a broader return of items.

 Did you know that at most genealogical events the Exhibit / Vending Hall is free and open to the public?  If for some reason you choose not to attend a conference nearby, plan to visit the exhibit hall to meet folks from local genealogical and historical societies and to look at the publications and products that might assist you in your research!
