Graves Family Association

The following books are now available for ordering. All books (unless otherwise noted) contain information on all known descendants of the ancestor, are 6"x9" size, hardcover, and are completely indexed (all books after the first 3 also have place indexes). All prices are in U.S. dollars. Postage for U.S. and Canada is as indicated below (inquire about postage for other countries). It was originally planned to publish books on all other Graves/Greaves families. However, because of the huge amount of time required to create the books, the big financial cost, and the increasing concern about privacy, that is not going to happen, even as e-books or print-on-demand books. (Note that a major difference between the online genealogies and the books is that the books all contain all information known about the family, through the most recent generation. The online genealogies generally omit the most recent generations that contain living descendants.)


All the books that are not sold out can be ordered with either PayPal or credit card through the PayPal links below. For orders outside the U.S., inquire about postage first. (Even for shipping to Canada, mailing costs are high.) Orders may also be placed by mail by sending a check payable to Kenneth Graves to 45 John Druce Lane, Wrentham,MA 02093.
