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 planned to publish books on all other Graves/Greaves families, including Graves Families of Randolph Co., NC, Capt. Thomas Graves of VA, John Graves of Frederick Co., VA, John Graves (Johann Sebastian Graff) of PA, NC & TN, Quaker Family of Thomas Graves of New Castle Co., DE, and others. As costs increased, it was decided that future books would eventually be published as print-on-demand books and/or as e-books rather than as traditional hardcover books. However, because of cost, the huge amount of time needed to create the books, and the greatly increased concern about privacy, there is no expectation of publishing any additional books in the future. (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.)

Ordering and payment information is at the bottom of this page.
