I like historical fiction but have really gotten into historical mysteries:
Authors I have enjoyed & the time periods and locals they cover.HISTORICAL MYSTERIES
Conquest of a Continent: Nine Generations on the American Frontier
By Theodore M. Banta
This historical novel, based on actual historical figures, follows one family line that never left the frontiers of North America from 1659 to 1921. It tells a seamless epic story of the conquest of the continent's frontiers and the building of the United States of America.
all of these books look like they are calling my name to read them. My trouble of reading them of coarse on line is that if I find something relating to the family I want to copy it all. Wow! thats alot of Ink and Paaper..lol But honestly the history side of Genealogy is all I truely like to read. The last book I skimmed was :
Abstracts of Wills 1791-1850 of Rensellaer County, N.Y.
