I have *no* financial interest in any of the activities of "Ford and Nagle",
I have however purchased two of their books after I first became acquainted
with them at the Fort Wayne Library Genealogy Department. I have been well
pleased with both books. The first I ordered via phone and received the
book promptly. The second book I picked up in Dayton, Ohio from Mr. Ford
personally. At that time he told me they were working on a new book for
Bourbon County, Kentucky.
I am only relating my personal experience. I am not recommending anything
or anyone. Buy the book or don't buy the book, it is an individual choice.
I have nothing to gain either way.
I hope my experience has helped you and others in some way.
