When I was first starting my genealogy reseearch, a friend of my family, Clair Grove, found my Casper Fisher family in his book, History and Genealogy of the Bieber, Beaver, Biever, Beeber Family by Rev. I. M. Beaver from 1939. I actually learned of a daughter, Mary Jane, who died as an infant, that I never knew about.
As my research grew and branched into the Woodcock Valley area, I always wished I could find a copy of the Beaver family history book. However, while I'm sure there are probably a lot of copies of the book around, most families do not part with such precious items.
I was fortunate to find a compay,https://www.facebook.com/AppleManorPress" target="_blank"> Apple Manor Press, that reprints old genealogy and local history books. I liked their Facebook page and asked if they had access to the Beaver family book. The answer was, "Yes." I received my copy in the mail today, and it was like Christmas at my house! While the original book is a large hardcover, the reprint is a two volume softcover set. Sure, it is not an original hardcover book, but I am very happy to just have a copy in my hands!
If you are interested in a copy of the Beaver family history book or any other out of print genealogy or history book, stop by the https://www.facebook.com/AppleManorPress" target="_blank">Apple Manor Press page on Facebook. If you click on "Like" at the top of the page, you can then post a message on the wall with the title of the book you are looking for. Also, if you click on "Info" you can find links to some of the sites that they sell books through. However, they do offer a discount if you order directly from them. You can find an e-mail address on the Info page too.
I can't wait to work my way through my new Beaver book! Thank you so much, Apple Manor Press
