Announcement:   The Maxeys of Virginia CD

I'm pleased to announce the availability of a CD version of my last book:
The Maxeys of Virginia: A Genealogical History of the Descendants of Edward and Susannah Maxey, Third Edition, 1,085 pp., index, maps, Baltimore, Maryland: Gateway Press, Inc., 2000.
The book has been out of print for the last two years and no reprints or future editions will be available.

H. David Maxey, who helped me with the Third Edition, has generously put the book on CD to make it available again to the family.  Dave will also be receiving orders and making and mailing copies of the CD, which I am no longer able to undertake.  The following is his description of the CD.

My best to you all,

Edythe Maxey Clark

(This portion last updated 1/1/2012. The CD is now Version 2)

The CD uses standard HTML that can be read with common Internet browsers.  Each page of text was electronically scanned and presented as a digital image, not as editable text, to ensure fidelity to the book.  The book's index was rendered in HTML to provide hypertext links for immediate access to the text pages.

The CD provides four additional indexes:
  • a military service index
  • an index to wills, letters, narratives and unusually interesting lives
  • an index by biographical sketch number, to quickly locate a sketch
  • a bookmark page that can be personalized to index particular families
In addition the CD has:
  • a modern map showing the location of the first homesteads
  • an image of the oldest record found thus far, from 1691
  • photographs of the Rocky Oak Church whose history dates back to 1745.

If you are interested in the CD, please contact me by email:

or, if that fails in the future, try the Maxey Mailing List at and search for the subject: "The Maxeys of Virginia CD". Look for the most current information.
