To celebrate the official return of Spring, Malcolm and Chris Moody of Archive CD Books Canada, are running a competition for you to win one of five Gleanings that the Archive CD Books Canada are going to give away.

All you have to do is make your way to their Facebook page: “LIKE” their page, scroll down to their posting announcing this competition and “LIKE” that posting, and you are entered. They will let the competition run for a week and on the 28th of March they will message the winners via. Facebook telling them how to collect the prize.
The easiest way to review all of their Gleanings is to go to their web site and navigate to the “Search Page”.

In the “Product Number” slot enter “CAG” (without the parenthesis), click on “Search” and you will get a list of the almost 100 titles they have available. Clicking on the “More” button to the right of each entry will take you to the page for that Gleaning in their catalogue so you can read more about it. Make a note of your selection so you can tell them which one you have chosen when you win.

Gleanings are a downloadable files containing a complete digital (PDF) image of a short publication, or an extract from a longer one, which contains some useful information about subjects of value to genealogists and historians. By eliminating the “transport media” (the CD) they can offer these valuable “snippets” at affordable prices and deliver them almost immediately, directly to your computer.
