Update on Bixenman Books
After emailing the long list of people expected to be interested in the republishing of the Bixenman Family History Book, Volume 1, I received an email from a distant cousin. She said, "I wish I had known you were looking for Sister Catherine's books. She gave me her copies of the Bixenmann family books and I have two copies of Book 2 and would love to send it to you as you are the first one to express interest."
So, my republishing wasn't "necessary" in order for me to obtain a copy. That's okay though. I'm happy to have it available to others who are interested given the short supply that is out there. I've decided to do the same thing with volume 2. I'm actually considering putting the two volumes together into one. I believe it would be within the page limits of the on-demand self-publishing site. If so, I think I'll make them available individually, in case someone needs just one volume. In addition, I'll see if I can put them into a single volume. I think this could be the next major project, to start from scratch to publish the entire Bixenman Family Tree book, including George Bixenman's branch, since I've since received that also.
However I proceed, I'll definitely work with Paula to be sure the best possible book is published.
