25 Free Kindle Books for Genealogy

Free Kindle Books for Genealogy

These Kindle books are all related to genealogy and/or history of particular areas where your ancestors may have lived. Many of these books also come in paperback and/or hardback. I like to check out the Kindle versions for free and then decide if I should also have a printed version for my library.

These Kindle books are free at the time of this post. But…Please be sure to check the price on each of these before clicking on the buy now button. The prices could change at anytime. Some of the books are only free if you have Kindle Unlimited, but are included since they are good resources.)
