Placements: The First Edition of Blackledges
in America was completed and published as hardcopy in 2002. The
compilers placed a copy in many of
genealogical libraries, to include the Family History Center in Salt
Lake City, UT, the Allen County Public Library in Ft. Wayne, IN, the
Mid-Continent Library in Independence, MO, the Library of Congress in
Washington, D.C., and (with many Blackledges residing in Mississippi)
the Laurel/Jones County Public Library in Laurel, MS. A
list of libraries holding a copy of the First Edition is below.
Researchers requested their own copy of this "Blackledge Book" (as Blackledges in America is referred to within the community). The compilers published 260 copies of the First Edition and genealogists purchased most of them. By March 2011, all copies of the First Edition had been dissemminated and no additional printings of the First Edition will occur. Within two years after the distribution of the First Editions, the compilers commenced work on a Second Edition to incorporate additions and corrections.
