BRITISH RESEARCH LIBRARY, Vol 2
County Visitations and
ALL ON ONE DVD DISK
You MUST have a DVD disk drive -- this DVD WILL NOT WORK in CD drives.
These publications ordered separately would cost hundreds of dollars and would be sent on multiple CD-ROM disks. Now, as long as you have a DVD drive on your computer, you can have this collection of our British visitations and parish registers on ONE DISK.
All publications are in Adobe PDF format, readable with Adobe Reader 6.0 or later. They are all word-searchable using Reader, unless otherwise stated. They may be copied to your hard drive, a CD-ROM, printed out (in whole, or just some pages), and yet they take up no more space than an audio CD, and cost less than one or two trips to a library.
