Almy Book CD Now Available

Merwin Almy's genealogy on William Almy and his Descendants in America is now available on CD (compact disc).

The CD is a guide for finding the ancestry and relationships between most of the Almys in the United States. It ties together over 3,000 persons born with the Almy surname. Although some basic documents were used to verify the relationship between the Almys, most of the information for later generations was obtained through correspondence with over 700 Almy descendants. In addition to correspondence, information was gathered from many sources, including microfilmed censuses, card catalogues and historical/genealogical books in numerous libraries across the United States.

The CD can be used in a PC or Mac. I have been told that owning a computer is not necessary. Just ask a grandchild to use their computer with your CD to find what you wish. However, an internal or external CD drive is necessary.

The information on the CD is indexed by Almy names, other names, Almy descendant number, and paragraph number. All you have to do is place your curser on what you want and click. You can go from father to child or child to father by just clicking on the person you wish to see. There is also a complete copy of the text in Adobe Acrobat Reader (PDF) format (937 pages long) suitable for printing in whole or in part.

The CD is $50.00 plus $5.00 for shipping. Send your check for $55.00 to Merwin Almy, 17835 SW Shasta Trail, Tualatin, OR 97062-8454. Please be patient. I will make your CD and send it as soon as I can.
