Note: Hello from ~debra. I have spent years collecting over 10,000 ID’d lost family photos & paper from US flea markets & antique shops. I do the best gen research I can, but am always open to corrections. This is an original antique item, not a reprint. A new high quality rigid sleeve is included for extra protection, especially during shipping. You may buy a piece alone, or 25 large intimate 300 dpi scans of the all pages, sent immediately via email, or both. Please search my site carefully, as the items are often found together and many may be related. I also invite you to join me at Ancestorville Genealogy on facebook.
