Genealogy Books

Welcome to Robb's Genealogy Books. I will be including mostly books about the Knapp and Wesala families, however I will also be adding books about other families and genealogy in general.

You can order most of the books cited by following a link to one of the online bookstores, although due to the nature of genealogy books, many of them will be out of print.

Please let me know if you would like me to try and find a book for you.
