Finally! After months of wrangling with the publisher over print and cover quality, I have approved the book and it is being published.An American Genealogy: The Copeland Family of Montgomery County Kansas
is available for sale.
The book will be on Amazon.com by next week. From this web site, I will have autographed copies ready to send out on August 19, 2010. As a 'release' special, I am offering free shipping to the lower 48 states through Sept. 2010. After Sept., the shipping charge is $3.50.
Contact me for rates to ship to AK, HI, and international destinations.
For those of you that purchased the 6 x 9 pre-release copy in April, here are the major differences:
- Most of the copyedits have been fixed
- Additional photos have been included (an early photo of Abner, Samantha, and 3 of the boys in front of their house with a dog and chickens; Susan Pence Copeland; the Scheel/Marshall daughters and mother; Arlene Copeland)
- Donna Copeland's memory of her father Donald William Copeland, including his military background and Purple Heart
- A 1937 letter from Donald Copeland to his grandmother Samantha Copeland
- The Obituary and Memorial Card for Arlene Copeland, who passed away on June 21, 2010.
I am so proud of this book, and am still in awe of the wonderful people that I met, and who told me the wonderful stories about the Copelands and their relations. I hope you enjoy reading this book as much as I did in writing it!
