I was wondering if you might know of a community historian that would be
interested in working with Arcadia on a pictorial history of Buchanan
County? This would include people with private photographic and postcard
Thus far, Arcadia has published pictorial histories on Dubuque, Cedar
Rapids, Bettendorf, Davenport, Cedar Falls, Clermont and Fayette County,
Ames, the University of Northern Iowa, Iowa's Black Legacy-we are
continually looking to expand our Iowa catalogue.
Each Arcadia title contains 180-240 black and white photos, and is 128
pages long. We are not a vanity press-we pay a royalty per book sold and
take on all production and marketing costs. If you know of anyone, or if
you yourself might be interested, please forward a request to my attention
at this email address. I would be thrilled to send along a sample book if
you would like to familiarize yourself with Arcadia's format. In addition,
you can visit our web site at http://www.arcadiapublishing.com. The office
telephone number is 773-549-7002.
Thank you for your time!

etc. We need help in gather lines, pictures, articles, wills, what ever you
have stashed in your attic. We would really appreciated it if you shared
with us what you had, there a literally thousands of us here looking for
our roots, looking for connections. For our 350th Anniversary we need to
updated our list of folks out there that are descendants somewhere along the
line of any of those variations. We also have a family newsletter that cost
only $5.00 per year, a real bargain. Just send it your mailing address.
Every day I get e-mail asking me for help. Up here in Canada, there were two
brothers that had huge families, all the remains of their descendants are
the female sides. All the male went back to the States. I'm am the
maintainer of "The Updated Swartwout Chronicles" People submit their
lines-ged-coms etc. and I just drop them into the data base. It is
everyone's database. Each person is responsible for their own submissions.
