Free books to aid your genealogy business

I've made no secret of the fact that I love my Kindle e-book reader and the many uses it provides for genealogy, as well as pleasure reading  (and games).

One of the aspects of being a Kindle owner that I really love is the ability to get dozens - even hundreds - of free books from Amazon.com. And you don't even have to own a Kindle to be able to read these books. Amazon offers applications that allow you to read these free books on your PC, Mac, iPad, iPhone, Blackberry, Android and Windows Phone.

Something I've noticed over the last six months is that the genealogy content available for Kindle has skyrocketed with many ebook self publishers making their guides and manuals available for the Kindle for fairly low prices. Some of these are certainly better than others. From about a dozen titles, a search for "family history" now results in more than 3,000 titles.

Free ebooks for business

One of my favorite pages to follow is Free Ebook Deal. Visit them on Facebook and Twitter. What I'd like to share today are some of the free ebooks that may aid you with your genealogy business or hobby with ideas for social networking, marketing, promotion, organizing your business and public speaking. Try these out for a test drive - what have you got to lose? They're free!

These are just a few of the hundreds of free ebooks available that may help with your business and marketing strategies. At this time, I've not had time to actually read all of them, so you will need to decide if any of the titles are of value to you.

At this writing, all of these ebooks were available free from Amazon.com. Any price is subject to change at a later date. Even while composing this post, I discovered that many of the titles I had obtained for free now have a charge associated with them. One thing I've learned - if you see a free title listed on Facebook that you might be interested in, grab it as soon as you can - many of these books are available free only for a few hours or a few days.

If you have other free ebooks to recommend, please leave a suggestion in the comments section below.

Enjoy reading!
