Book Reviewers Needed

Do you like to read? Can you do it critically but fairly and with an eye towards what might be helpful to fellow genealogists? If so, we really could use you to help with book reviews for our Quarterly journal. We have a backlog of books that need reviewing right now and would like to move those books off the pile and onto the library shelves for people to use. But we can't do that until they are reviewed, so everyone knows we have them and what they contain.




Here is what is available:
  • 1804 Tax Assessment, Baltimore County, Maryland by Michael A. Ports
  • Finding Your Irish Ancestors in New York City by Joseph Buggy
  • Dictionary of Americanized French-Canadian Names: Onomastics and Genealogy by Marc Picard
  • The Cincinnati Germans after the Great War by Don Heinrich Tolzmann
  • O'Sullivan (O Suillebhain) the Earliest Irish Royal Family, History and Genealogy, 3rd edition, by William Randolph McCreight
  • Genealogy at a Glance Series: Civil War Research by Nancy Hendrickson
  • Genealogy at a Glance Series: Cherokee Genealogy Research by Myra Vanderpool Gormley
  • Genealogy at a Glance Series: Italian Genealogy Research by Sharon DeBartolo Carmack
  • Genealogy at a Glance Series: Court Records by Wendy Bebout Elliott
  • The Speth/Spaeth and Braun Families by Sandra M. BrunsmannHughes
  • Ebbets: The History and Genealogy of a New York Family, revised edition, by Edward E. Steele
If you can help out, please contact our archivist, Dan Kerckhoff, at archivist@stlgs.org and he will give you directions on how to submit your review. You will need to come into the office to pick up and return the book, but all your writing and your submission can be done electronically. Thank you!
