A few weeks ago I created a new online genealogy bookstore: RootsBooks.com. This site provides one-stop shopping for almost all the popular genealogy books. It also sells genealogy CD-ROM disks, software, magazines, and even memberships to many genealogy societies. I also added some non-genealogy items that are related to various newsletter articles I have written in recent months. This online bookstore primarily serves genealogists in North America.
Reception to this new online bookstore has been great but I did receive a few e-mail messages from readers in the U.K., asking, "How can we order these materials?" In response I have now added that capability. RootsBooks.co.uk is now online. It is similar to its sister site of RootsBooks.com but is much more focused on genealogy research in the British Isles. Almost all the books listed are about U.K. or Irish genealogy research. In addition, the prices are listed in pounds and almost all products will ship from U.K. warehouses.
RootsBooks.co.uk is opening with an inventory of nearly 1,000 books, most of which cover topics related to genealogy, heritage, DNA, heraldry, or royalty. You can find a separate section for each of England's historic counties plus other sections for Wales, Scotland and Ireland as well as books about Jewish genealogy and DNA genealogy techniques. You can also find a separate section for the many publications of the Society of Genealogists. Windows and Macintosh genealogy programs that are popular in the British Isles are also offered for sale on RootsBooks.co.uk.
For your safety, RootsBooks.co.uk uses Amazon.co.uk's safe and secure online payment system, as well as its fulfillment services.
