With online services it doesn't matter if the company is on the other side of the world, the service is identical.  That's true of a new initiative at www.gen-ebooks.com/.

To kick off the service they are offering free the Australian Handbook 1900 covering the whole Australian region with histories and maps of each colony as seen from the perspective of 1900, extensive almanac-type details, timetables, statistics etc.. There are a handful of other ebooks a mix of the Australia-focused and guides for family history research in Germany, Ireland and Scotland from their Unlock the Past partner. Be aware that prices are quoted in dollars and the Australian dollar is worth a bit more than the Canadian.

The service is a division of Gould Genealogy & History, which was established in Australia in 1976, and among many other initiatives, through Archive Digital Books Australasia, is a partner in the international Archive CD Books initiative. This venture into ebooks is another example of the company adapting to changing times.
