In preparation for my Arkansas trip, I ordered an Arkansas Atlas and Gazetteer today. I just have a feeling it will come in handy as we make our way through Pope County. I want to visit a few cemeteries and other locations where the directions aren't exact. I'm hoping this book will help.
I'm also trying to build a little genealogy library of my own, since the books I want to read the most aren't carried by my public library. Along with the Arkansas map, I ordered Professional Genealogy and The BCG Genealogical Standards Manual. I think I'll be happy with both.
