Fales Book Supplement Now AvailableBook photo

The Fales Family:  Supplement to the First Ten Generations in America by Jeraldene Beesley Bloom, with assistance from John Thomas Fales, © 2011.

This book focuses on the female Fales lines that were not covered in the original book, with some branches extending down to the grandchildren of those Fales daughters.  Of course, it also includes many Fales sons, who were discovered after the book in 2005 was completed.  There are additionally many stories, many black & white photographs, updates, and/or corrections to the details shown in the original book.  It now extends into the 15th generation of the Fales name in America with 376 pages, hard-bound in an attractive dusty-blue cover with gold print.

The first 50 orders received a FREE bonus of a searchable CD created by John T. Fales of "The Complete Collection of the Fales Family Bulletin," created in March 2003.  This collection of Fales Family Association newsletters spans the period of November, 1983 through November 1993. This issue is sold out, with the exc eption of 8 copies held for potential donation to go with the John Fales book where library holdings are already established.  As with the first edition, those of you who wish to purchase a copy for donation to one of the libraries that holds the original book, we will be pleased to ship a copy to them with a letter of donation from you.  Or we can send the book to you for your personal presentation to that library. Cost:  $50.  Should you wish to purchase one of these for donation to a library of your choice, here are the libraries still available:

Libraries that already received the Jeraldene Bloom supplement to go with the original John T. Fales book are the following:

A second printing of 100 books is now available, so paid orders can continue to be filled, first-come, first-served.  However, we have a "good news/bad news" situation.  Due to a miscommunication with the printer, we had an "oops" printing of this edition where the index pages are wrong.  To allow the Fales descendants to be found easily, these copies have a corrected index insert included.  (An electronic copy of the corrected index is also available here.)  We are charging only $39.95 for these copies (Free shipping!) That's a savings of over $10! Send order request with your check to
