(A facsimile (from Latin fac simile ('make alike'), a spelling that remained in currency until the late 19th century) is a copy or reproduction of an old book, manuscript, map, art print, or other item of historical value that is as true to the original source as possible. These books are exact copies of the original books except for the covers.)
After making CD Books for years I found there are still a lot of people who prefer the real thing, after all it’s a bit difficult to take a Cd to bed to read. So I purchased the equipment to print and bind books. The scanned images are edited page by page and the marks of age are removed. The pages are then printed and bound with a perfect binding machine. This machine uses hot glue to bind the pages. All of the books have soft card covers and are gloss coated.

We also have some colourful children’s genealogy books that make family history look like fun.
This is a copy of the 1912 Edition of Wises New Zealand Index, it is a great asset for finding those out of the way places, and because it is such an early edition also gives some insight into the modes of transport, the size of the populated areas of New Zealand. This edition has been done with OCR and will contain some mistakes that the scanner was unable to read correctly due to age marks on the pages.
