Years ago while attempting to trace my Catholic genealogy, I found Catholic records very difficult to research. I found the very old journals of the American Catholic Historical Society at a local seminary here in Miami and copied them for my own personal use. It occurred to me that others were having the same problem finding records, so I compiled them. Seems after I started all this, all the genealogy companies were on the bandwagon to get Catholic records into print.
I recently found my books on a CD, and decided to once again share them with those who do not have them. They are free for the taking.
Unfortunately, CATHOLIC TRAILS WEST, Volumes I and II are sold out.
