25 Kindle Unlimited Genealogy Books to Help Your Research & Storytelling

Fuzzy Ink Stationery | Researching Tips | 25 Kindle Unlimited Genealogy Books to Help Your Research & Storytelling

Kindle Unlimited is the Netflix for books. So it was a no brainer for me to say yes to a subscription and get some reading done. Just picture my dance of joy when I discovered that the subscription includes family history and genealogy books.

Whether your looking to fill long summer days or cold winter ones, it’s a great time to pick up some new knowledge about your no. 1 hobby.

The best part is that when you find some favourite genealogy books, they are affordable to buy so you can keep them forever! Finally, I’m not an Amazon affiliate and I don’t receive any income if you buy a subscription or book. I just love books and learning new tricks.
