Treasure Thursday – Doane Collection


I found this book at a yard sale, “Searching For Your Ancestors” written by Gilbert H. Doane. There is a lot of great information in it for amateur genealogists about how to research your family, where to look, what to look for, etc. It is the third edition printed in 1960. The first edition was printed in 1937. If anyone knows of a first edition available, I’m interested in getting a copy.
As for the Doan’s Pills tin, I bought it from eBay a few years ago for a couple of dollars. James Doan invented the pills while working as a druggist in Kingsville, Ontario.
