Madigan's Books was established in 1985 by Matt Madigan and is a mail order book business dealing only in books of genealogical interest. The books we carry will vary from rare antiquarian books to used copies of books still in print. We usually have only one copy of a book in stock and we do not limit our stock to any one geographical area. As one would expect we carry census, vital and courthouse records, county, town and family histories, directories and plat books. Also you may find listed town view or promotional booklets, Congressional records, Church records, military records or society quarterlies. The books we stock are based on over 30 years of doing genealogical research. If a book has information which will help to extend a family lineage or flesh out the history of an ancestor I will add it to stock.
At one time we issued 3-4 lists per year but my career in teaching & college administration had to take priority so lists were curtailed and our inventory was placed online. The majority of our stock can be found online but there is always a delay in adding material to the site. It is my hope with my recent retirement I will find time to start issuing lists again. We are a closed shop but will gladly welcome customers who wish to view our inventory. I should say attempt to view because the books are scattered in several rooms through out our house. If you are in the area and would like to set up an appointment, please contact us.
