I discovered that google has many books on line
click on all books and type in genealogy and you will be able to search 156 600 books. I discovered the above book in the subject line hoping it would
be mine and it was not so hoping this will help someone else. Happy

I have found the newsletter friends have been "quiet" lately, so thought this might interest some. I received it from a friend but have not had time to try it yet. Hope it works!

You can go to the Brigham Young University website and do searches of over 5000 books which the Family History Library has put online.

...the LDS Family History Library has announced that it has begun the process of digitizing and making available on the Internet all of the Family History books in their collection. These are primarily books in the "929.273 Series" that are currently housed on the first floor of the Family History Library (previously housed on the fourth floor of the Joseph Smith Memorial Building). At the present time (September 2005), about 5000 books have been digitized and are available, and they have announced that they are adding about 100 titles a week to the on-line collection. Copyright issues are playing a role in determining the order in which they progress through this task; books out of copyright are being done first.

As these Family History books are digitized and placed on-line, an entry is being placed in the Family History Library on-line catalog with a hyperlink to the digitized image. By going to the FHL On-Line Catalog, you can search for a specific name, find a book that has been indexed using the name, and view it on-line, flipping through the pages as separate "pdf" images, much the same as if you were on the first floor of the Family History Library. Of course, the indexing that is available through the FHL Catalog is only as good as the human indexers made it; typically they only include the "top" 4 to 6 names that appear in each book in their indexing efforts.

But there is even better news!

The digitized images of these Family History books are actually being stored on the electronic servers at Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah. By going directly to the BYU web site to view the images, there are several additional possibilities that provide genealogists functionality that they have never had before. You are now able to do full-text searches on each book, and on every digitized book in the collection. Now you can locate the small two- paragraph entry on Grandpa Ebnezer McGarrah that is buried in one of the Family History books that you would have otherwise never thought,to look at before. This can open up a huge new possibility for extending lines, getting past brick walls, and uncovering new relatives!

How to Find The Digitized Images?

Go to the web site of the Harold B. Lee Library at BYU at and on their home page, follow the links "Find Other Materials/Electronic/On Line Collections at BYU". Click on the "Text Collections" tab and select the "Family History Archive" from the list of collections that are displayed. You would then normally want to use the "Search All" feature with the "Search Full Text" box checked, although the "Advanced Search" will allow very high-powered searches that will allow certain phrases to be searched for and other words to be used to exclude potential hits. As you make selections from the "hits" that are displayed, you will need to use the "Click Here to View Item" button near the top of the screen to display the actual image of the page. You can page through the entire document using the index displayed on the left side of the screen. Each page may be printed after being viewed.

One interesting sidelight is, when you are at the first web page for the Family History Archive (the page that lets you begin a search), click on the "Browse the Collection" button. This will display every Family History book that has been digitized and is available in the collection. You can scroll through this list much the same as if you were walking up and down the stacks at the library. At the top of the first page of the search results, it displays the number of hits, which (in this
case) is the number of books in the collection. If you keeptrack of this number, you can get a pretty good idea of how fast they are adding titles to the collection as you revisit the web site from time to time. I think you will want to visit this site often as the collection grows!" Brigham Young University Library

This site is great. Just type in Sellers and you'll get links to more than
400 collections which hold letters and tidbits of information about Sellers
families. Dozens deal with the remarkable people who were part of the
Philadelphia Sellers family(ies), but other citations go far afield.

TIP: look in the summary in italics at the bottom of each citation. You'll
see what is contained by clicking on the link just above there. Only bother
looking at ones where Sellers is capitalized.

ARCHIVEGRID. Launched by the Research Libraries Group, it contains nearly a million archival collection descriptions held by hundreds of libraries, archives and museums. A search result page includes a list of archive collections, a summary of the archives and archive locations that are represented in the collections, as well as a search box that enables the user to limit a search to a particular date range, an archive and/or the location of the archives. The description of each collection includes a title, the name of the archive, and some brief information from its description. Free access until 31 May. _

Have fun,

This is the book site that is even bigger than that I couldn't remember this morning. Eileen in Massachusetts tipped me off on this one.

Go to the web site of the Harold B. Lee Library at BYU,

From the list of collections that are displayed, choose:

"Find Other Materials"
"On Line Collections at BYU"
Choose the TAB "Text Collections"

             SELLERS Bibliography, Part 1

             Charlotte Sellers <>

This bibliography of items by or about the Sellers surname is based on
records in the OCLC bibliographic utility in February 2000.
Variations in spelling have not been searched.  The lists probably are
not exhaustive.

The materials are in English and are books, unless noted otherwise.
Some are in more than one format.

Where more than one record exists for a particular work, all OCLC
numbers have been included.  Some materials may be held by a number of
institutions although, in rare cases, a record may exist with no
holdings.  Others may be found in only one location. Policies about
access will be up to the individual institutions.

Most items probably will NOT be available through interlibrary loan.
Photocopies of particular sheets or pages MAY be available, depending
on institutional policies and whether you can determine what is

The institutions holding a particular work may be determined through
libraries that are members of OCLC.  Providing the OCLC number(s) as
well as titles can be helpful in the search.

The records are grouped first by state (although that is a guess in
some cases).  The state of Pennsylvania has by far the most records
and makes up the second part of the bibliography.  Two records on
other countries follow the various states in the first part.  Family
and miscellaneous records are in the third part.

The title is the first part of each record, followed by an author if
there is one, a description of the format & contents, then the OCLC

Happy hunting!

SELLERS - A Preliminary Study of the Descendants of Heinrich Sellers

by Frank M. Sellers, 1120 South Wolff, Denver, Co, 80219


Henry/Heinrich Sellers, born 1704 near Weinheim, Germany, his wife,

Anna Maria and at least two of their children came to America in 1738,

landing at Phildelphia.  Henry died 1773 in Augusta Co, VA, that vast

portion of Virginia that extended to the Ohio River.  He, wife, and

children; Anna Barbara, John, Peter, Adam, Henry, Anna Maria, Catherine

and Elizabeth were all members of the Peaked Mountain Church, Rockingham

Co, VA.  Some of this family was later in KY, OH, and IN.



Sellers Family of Pennsylvania and Allied Families by Edwin Jacquett

Sellers...has been donated by Linda Whitmire Wright to the McClung

Historical Collection, 600 Market Street, Knoxville, Tennessee.


Book begins with Hans George Soller of Weinheim, Germany and follows the

family through his son, Philip Henry Soller who came to America with his

wife and four children.  His sons were Philip, Leonard, Philip Henry, 

John, Paul, Peter and Jacob.   This family was in PA, MD and VA.


The book has no index and no copyright mark.  It was published in 1925

Sellers and Wampole Families by the same author in 1903, of which only

150 copies were printed.

SANDY - thanks, maybe start a page for BOOKS on SELLERS -

hardest thing is HOW to add, keep track of corrections for these books -

but, as with all info, we need to check it out ourselves -
like the Marion Co, SC book connected to WM SELLERS several people have

restudied and claim BENJAMIN SELLERS, which, I'm sure is correct -
ALSO The Cousins by Dozens, has been corrected to a differant MATHEW

SELLERS - BUT, it does confuse the people that have read/have these

books - THANKS, marie, iowa

 I haven't written to you in some time. I made a contact with a Sellers desendant,named Steve Due. I
just wonder does he have his info on the Sellers Rootsweb. I have wanted to get my hands on a book
named The Doty,Anderson,Sheppard and Allied Families,written by Carl V. Wright. This is the Anderson
and Sellers Family that moved from N & S.Carolina thru Geo.,Ala,and Mississippi.Steve told me about
this book and I can't seem to get a copy of it.
 Beginning as far back as William Calvin Sellers Sr.of Tarboro,N Carolina.This ancestor according to his
story was in the Revolutionary War at age 16and at one time was a pow of the Tories.
If you know any one lineages that fit this family give me the web site. Thanks for all you do,and I wonder
how you do what you do . You seem to skip from one Sellers to another with out blinking an eye.Love
cuz,Sara Sellers

 There was a "Swiss and German Pioneer Settlers Of South-Eastern PA,
and of Their remote Ancestors, From the Middle of the Dark Ages, Down to the
Time of the Revolutionary War" 1917, by an H. Frank Eshleman, B.E., M.E,.
LL.B.  It had Sellers and Zellers on the index.  Now to find a library with
a copy!  I printed all 18 pages to read and absorb later.

I have Opal Freer Spencer's book on William Seller of Isle of Wight.  I have
found it to be a very informative and interesting book.  She certainly put a
lot of time in research and I admire her for taking on this task.  I have
found the book to be very much worth the cost.


Ms Spencers email address is as follows:

John F. James


Regarding: Descendants of William Sellers, Sr. of Isle of Wight, VA., 1657 Compiled & Edited by Opal Roberta Freer Spencer. I find this book to be of very questionable worth in SELLERS genealogy. It really is not finely worked genealogy. It appears rather to be little more than a casual compilation of genealogy tidbits from commonly available data sources. I found part of the SELLERS book completely wrong and not researched at all when much accurate information was always available to anyone doing a simple and basic search. I contacted Opal Spencer with this observation, offering proof and corrections, and she did not respond. When a research type book such as this one is found in great error in part how can any of it's contents be trusted? Is there anyone in this group with experience with this book that could be described more favorable than this message? ............ Ray/FL
