book titled "Henry Kirkham of Colonial Virginia and his ancestors"
I found a book "Henry Kirkham of Colonial Virginia and his ancestors" by Steve Kirkham listed as a reference when researching my great grandmothers family tree on family search. It has my family listed from my 2nd great grandmother to my 6th great grandfather. I would dearly like to get a copy of the book, but the authors phone number is no longer valid, its not for sale anywhere on the internet, and the only copies are at the LDS library. Could I get an electronic copy or hard copy from the library? None of the library holdings are in my state of residence. One of the main contributors, Marie Morrissett was a good friend of my grandmothers and although both of them passed away decades ago, I would love to have a copy of the work they both contributed to.
I would appreciate knowing how to go forward.
@NancyPeck The book "Henry Kirkham of Colonial Virginia and his descendants; v. 02" has been digitized, and can be viewed online. https://www.familysearch.org/library/books/records/item/292011-henry-kirkham-of-colonial-virginia-and-his-descendants-v-02?offset=1
and Volume 1, as well: https://www.familysearch.org/library/books/records/item/297299-henry-kirkham-of-colonial-virginia-and-his-descendants-v-01?offset=21
Can it be printed out?0
You still need to follow copyright - printing the whole book would break that right. "Access Level" for vol. 1 shows "Full Permission" - I'm not sure if that is for FamilySearch or Familysearch guests. If the author is still living and as a 'close' family relation - you could locate him and request that permission. I received an initial message that it (one of the volumes) was only viewable at the Family History Library, a Center or an Affiliate Library - but then it let me view it anyway (something not right about that).0
It shows a "print/download" option at the bottom of the view screen. As genthusiast says, you must follow copyright guidelines, but you can definitely save a full copy to your computer for ease of reading.0
@genthusiast what you saw about the access may be just a lag in the system recognizing that you are logged in. I often get a "person does not exist" or other similar message when I re-open a record I've just accessed. Then the page refreshes, and all is correctly displayed.0
