We are very excited to announce that the following businesses and organizations have registered as Exhibitors for the 2020 Heartland Family History Conference!  Please take time to visit and shop with them during the Conference.

You never know what you will find while shopping at Books & Things. Because of the large variety of new, used and out-of-print books, the possibilities are endless.  Some genealogists have been thrilled to locate books with information about difficult to find ancestors. Others have discovered out-of-print books they have wanted for years. As the largest traveling genealogy book dealer in the U.S., our inventory is constantly growing and changing. Check out our website ( before a conference for family histories and county histories, which don’t travel with us. If you see something you want to buy or want to check out before you buy, call or send an email. We can bring it to the conference.  Email:    phone: 817.293.2739

Since 1987 librarians, genealogists and historians have been using Michiana History Publications to locate new and used genealogy and history books including those hard-to find or out-of-print books. We also publish a few of our own materials, including early Indiana maps as well as maps on Germany, Ireland, and Scotland.  Our inventory includes genealogy charts and forms, archival supplies, scrap booking pages, new and used genealogy and history books, and reprints of over 150 United States and European maps.


Family History from a new perspective.  Use the powerful method of  Geocoding your family history data to solve puzzles and find answers to your genealogy mysteries.  Owner Del Kahre will be demonstrating this technique in a breakout session.

Our rates are much lower than if you ordered these files directly from the National Archives, and you’ll get the records back much quicker too. We go to DC so you don't have to!
