"Fifty Years of the Mancelona Herald", is a collection of stories from the Mancelona Herald covering the period from 1881 through 1930, 593 pages of stories about the people who settled and shaped the village of Mancelona. It is currently available in Word or WordPerfect format but, like all of the CD's, is available in PDF format. This means that any machine, Windows or Mac, can run the file regardless of the word processor used. "The Cemeteries of Antrim County" is vastly superior to any other version because: . It is word and name-searchable . It is more complete -- added were bordering cemeteries in order to include more residents of Warner & Echo twps. . It is more complete -- Burial Permits were consulted. As a result there are HUNDREDS of people for whom no stone was ever erected. . It is more accurate. Over 40% of all entries are corroborated by reference to obituaries, vital records and other sources. In many cases, even stones now illegible can be consulted. . It is substantially less expensive at $15.95 despite the fact that it is a huge document. If hard-bound, it would consist of 469 pages 14" wide. "The Complete Vital Records of Antrim County from the beginning in 1867 through 1902" This 575 page document contains ALL of the births, marriages and deaths recorded at the County seat. "The Biographical History of Northern Michigan" was published by Bowen in 1905. Its 855 pages contained 598 essays about the citizens of 21 counties of northern lower Michigan and included approximately 60 photos. Antiquarian book dealers charge as much as $200 a copy. Our version eliminates the extraneous commentary that gives "mud books" a bad name but keeps the useful data and the photos. It is 14 point print for easy reading and is word-and-name searchable. In PDF format, it will run on any machine, regardless of operating system or word-processor type.
