I have written to some key people to get addresses for those who may wish to purchase the book on the descendants of Samuel Gibson and Ellen O’Reilly. If you wish to purchase a book or to learn more, contact me at:
This is the message I am trying to get to folks.
The book I have been working on, (with wonderful help from fellow researchers and our incredible editor), for the descendants of Samuel Gibson and Ellen O’Reilly is 95% complete. Because of the emphasis on DNA, I am waiting until late summer to publish it. It has been a labour of love, filled with surprises.
I require pre-orders since I am self-publishing this book. It will be a hard cover book, about 415 pages in length with several colour pages. The price will be probably $50 (plus shipping if applicable) as it was for the Lunney book and the Doherty book. I wish to send requests to members of the family and require contact information. Can you help me by providing email addresses for as many as possible?
I will send a separate email to each person with a copy of the Table of Contents and details about price, shipping, etc.
Thank you in advance for helping me get pre-orders. Each of you has in some way contributed to this book so my thanks is two-fold. The number of books will be limited and I don’t anticipate a second printing.
Our plan is to travel to Hastings, Ontario, in the fall to distribute as many copies of the book as possible. I am also looking for a location from which to set up a table to sell the books so if any of the “locals” have an idea, I would appreciate it.
