How to Make Money Selling Genealogy Information
The computer revolution, and especially the Internet revolution, has created business opportunities for thousands of everyday citizens. To create and sell goods or information, it is no longer necessary to have a "bricks and mortar" store. Likewise, to launch a mail order business, it is no longer necessary to have a fleet of trucks. In fact, you do not even need to maintain specific office hours when your business is open to the public. All you need is a personal computer and a presence in cyberspace. Your business will be open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, even if you happen to be sleeping at the moment.
Genealogists are hungry for information. Genealogy information is often available in old printed books and records, printed works that are not covered by copyright laws. Many genealogists are willing to pay reasonable fees to obtain these books and other publications.
