This subject came up in the ROOTS-L forum about two months ago. Here is the
entire text of my message to the group at that time:
In the time I've been on ROOTS-L and the thousands of messages I've scanned,
I don't remember ever seeing a reference to what is, for me, a prime source
of genealogical data: Tuttle Antiquarian Books, Inc in Rutland, VT. I've
purchased one of their annual catalogs for the past 14 years, and have never
failed to be in awe of their vast selection.
I'm not and employee nor do I have any connection with the company other
than as a happy customer. To give you some idea, they list in the catalog:
3,655 published family genealogies.
Reproductions of coats-of-arms.
Hundreds, perhaps thousands of books on local history, arranged by area.
Serial publications and periodicals.
Genealogical supplies and how-to books.
All in all, 273 pages (last year) of genealogical goodies!
I just got a postcard from them today, announcing the publication of catalog
#15. The cost is $7.50 postpaid, and is, IMHO, money well-spent. They're
taking orders now for the mailing, which should be in March.
Their full address:
Tuttle Antiquarian Books, Inc.
28 South Main Street
Rutland, VT 05701
Phone: (802) 773-8229
Fax: (802) 773-1493
If you're interested, you might try sending them an e-mail message and ask
to be put on the mailing list.
