Whether it's your long-anticipated Genealogist's Dream Vacation, or you're just squeezing in a little fun while passing through Massachusetts on a business trip, take a look at these websites when you're planning your trip.

Massachusetts Genealogy & History Books & CDs
From antique books to the latest in CD-ROM best-seller data collections, we've got links to a wide variety of Massachusetts genealogical & historical resources from several different online stores.   You'll find new, used, out-of-print, rare, antique, and otherwise hard-to-find books, documents, original antique maps, 19th-century Massachusetts newspapers, and other ephemera relating to Massachusetts families and history. 

I try to add items that I would like to find. For example, I'd be thrilled to find an original will from the 1700s, or a family Bible, or a collection of letters, from my own lines, so when I find similar documents (usually from the wonderful, independent sellers on Alibris), I add them to the Bookstore and the Index of Names.

The sellers share a small portion of the purchase with us at, which makes it possible for me to produce this website and to share my collection without charging my visitors. So thank you, in advance, for your support!
I never know what I'm likely to find, so check back now and then to see what might be new! if you're revisiting a page, click your browser's "refresh" button to make sure you get the latest page version. Do remember, though, that some of the unique, one-of-a-kind items may not be available the next time you check! They can go quickly!
