"History of the KAGY Relationship in America"

Franklin Keagy's 600+ page family genealogy "History of the Kagy Relationship in America, 1715-1900" (Harrisburg Publishing Co., 1899) is available in several formats. For hard copy see the web site of the Higginson Book Co. in Salem, MA; they print from microfilm to good paper and bind in paperback or hard covers (about $95 for hardcovers which a book of this size needs). For a less expensive version on CD-ROM see Quintin Publications in Pawtucket, RI (about $35). To read free versions on the web see Internet Archives project or the Google Book Project; they have scanned copies from libraries. Finally, a researcher named Wanda Elder has put a version on her web site (whose address she gives farther down this forum). Also, check WorldCat for libraries near you which might have a copy. For instance: the library at the Pennsylvania Historical Society in Philadelphia, the Lancaster Mennonite Historical Society in Lancaster, PA, the Shenandoah (VA) County Library, Fairfield County District Library in Lancaster, Ohio, etc. This work traces half a dozen separate Kagi immigrants from Switzerland to America and is essential for Kagi-Kagy-Kagey-Kagay researchers.
