The Weekly Genealogist Survey
Last week's survey asked what kinds of genealogical publications you would be likely to read in electronic format. More than one answer could be selected. 3,438 people answered the survey. The results are:
• 63%, Books of records from a single source (example: Hartford County, Connecticut, County Court Minutes)
• 65%, Books of records compiling data from multiple sources (example: Torrey's New England Marriages Prior to 1700
• 70%, Genealogies/family histories
• 68%, Local histories (example: Genealogies of the Families and Descendants of the Early Settlers of Watertown, Mass
• 51%, Books from the Great Migration series
• 35%, How-to books (example: Genealogist's Handbook for New England Research
• 51%, Back issues of periodicals
• 38%, Other types of genealogically related publications
• 8%, I do not read books in electronic format--but would be likely to buy an e-reader if more genealogically related books were available electronically.
• 16%, I do not read books in electronic format--and do not plan to.
