Book is almost done

In my last post I said that I was close to having all of the information from Glenn’s work entered into a database. I have now finished that work. There are close to 31,000 names in the database.

Currently Glenn and I are working on fixing known errors, especially typos and misspellings. This will take some time as sometimes the information is just not easy to get. However, I feel that a well written book is getting much closer to reality.

The next step, which I am busy trying to do, is to find a publisher. I have contacted a couple of places and may have found one that will work. Because of the size of the database the book will be around 2200 pages which means multiple volumes. This also means that the cost of printing will be substantial.

For anyone interested in a hard copy please let me know. I will also like to know of places that might possibly like a copy. So far I will send a copy to the Historical Society of Frederick County and the Maryland Room at the C Burr Arts library in Frederick. I would like to only have one printing of the book if possible. IF you have any other suggestions please let me know.
