Global Genealogy Annual Top 10 List

Here's the annual list from Rick and Sandra Roberts of Global Genealogy of their top titles and individual products for 2014.

1.      Le Tanguay Collection, Version 3.0

2.      Loyalist Refugees, Non-Military Refugees in Quebec 1776-1784  By Gavin K. Watt

3.      GLOBAL Brand Hinged Archival Boxes – Buffered  

4.      Jetté - Dictionnaire généalogique des familles du Québec

5.      Old County Maps of England 1836

6.      A Topographical Dictionary of Ireland [1842]

7.      Peter Robinson's Settlers By Carol Bennett

8.      Heritage Preservation Starter Kit

9.      Dictionary of Scottish Emigrants to Canada Before Confederation (pre-1867) Vol. 1, 2, 3 & 4 By Donald Whyte

10.   Ignored but Not Forgotten, Canada's English Immigrants By Lucille H. Campey

A reminder that there's a 60-minute YouTube video of a lecture with the same title given by Lucille Campey at the 2014 BIFHSGO Conference.

Rick commented that though they have enjoyed especially strong sales of MacDonald Research books this year (Stormont Dundas and Glengarry County, Ontario church records), no individual titles in that category made the list.

He also mentioned that the sales mix changed significantly mid-year with the release of all Global Heritage Press and MacDonald Research books as pdf downloads during the summer.  "That will likely make a big change in the top 10 list for 2015."

Thank you! Some of these look like they will be very helpful to my current research about my Dad's side (lots of Scots & Irish through Uppier and Lower Canda, plus one branch in New Brunswick,to Michigan). I recently finished reading Lucille Campey's book on the Scottish Pioneers of Upper Canada - fascinating! I can't wait to check out your links. So glad I stumbled across this today. I'm going to add this blog to my Feedly.
