North Lake Connections Book

A few years back, I put together a book on the people and places of North Lake which proved to be rather popular as a reference source during discussions. Many people have asked if there are any updated books available.

As you can see from the content on this site, there is a significant increase in articles as well as the database of people. While the process of adding to the site is relatively simple, putting it together in book form is far more time consuming. Editing, formatting, adding pictures and anecdotes just to mention a few of the requirements. The total time is probably well in excess of 40 hours spread over a couple of months.

That being said, I am happy to say the updated book is now completed.

It consists of 1450 pages divided into 7 parts: Historical background of North Lake, Communities, Migration and Settlement (a well researched paper by Rex Grady), People database, Murder in North Lake, Cemetery Burials and the 1901 and 1911 census for North Lake. The one thing not included is the birth dates of people born 1930 or later, unless dead. This is to respect their privacy.

There are two means of obtaining a copy of the book. (online download) or a hard copy. Both are available for a small price to cover some of the costs associated with it.

The download version is in PDF format (you will need Adobe Reader to view), for $15. The process is fairly straight forward. Clicking on the link below, you will be taken to the "shopping cart" where you add it to the cart, then proceed to checkout to make payment. Along the way you are asked to provide a name and email address, put a check mark in the box below this information to indicate the billing address is the same, then go to checkout to place order. All payments are processed through PayPal, a safe and secure method. If you do not have an account with PayPal, so indicate by clicking that button and you will be shown a screen for choice of credit card. None of this information is shown in full on screen (they use *****) and the only information I get is that payment has been made. Once that is complete, payment accepted you will get an email containing a link to where the file may be downloaded. On click, the download should start without further action required. If you do run into problems, please contact me by email outlining the problem. I will get back to you in very short time.

The hard copy version is presently at the publisher's awaiting a cost quote; therefore, I am unable to set a price at the moment. From preliminary discussions, I am expecting the cost to buyer will be in $25-$30 range, hopefully less. I will so advise when I know for sure.
