Genealogical and Historical Books and Reprints

Two firms in our region are excellent sources of new and reprinted genealogical and historical books — Willow Bend Books in Westminster MD and Colonial Roots in Lewes DE.

Willow Bend Books closed its "brick and mortar" store October 1, 2005, and will now sell online, by phone, or by mail.

Colonial roots still maintains its store at 217 Schley St., Lewes DE (Wed. thru Sat. 10-5) where used and rare books and maps are also offered. In addition, they sell online, by phone, or by mail. Their recent 94-page catalog covers Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Virginia. It includes seven pages of Delaware books, including the reprint of Scharf's History of Delaware with the added index.
