This is to update those of you interested in the Back/Bach books and the BACH-BACK web site..
For those of you not familiar with the Back/Back books they were a two volume set published in 1994 by the Back/Bach genealogy society.This was not a commercial venture but information about the Back's by the Back's.The books contain information on over 36000 people tracing the family back to the 1500's.A limited run of 500 copies of the books were printed.The books are now out of print and the plates were destroyed.
We have permission from the Back/Bach Genealogy Society to make the books available on CD's.We will be taking a multi step approach.
Step one is to make the first CD version of the books look exactly like the hardcover books.These CD's will have search capabilities.We will include copies of the previous editions of the Back/Bach Genealogy Society newsletter on the CD's so that you will have any updates submitted to the Society.
It is our objective to make the information in the books dynamic.By this I mean we want to correct errors, add individuals and update vital statistics as they occur.To accomplish this step two will be to put the information found in the books into a database so that updates are easier to maintain.
Future versions of the CD's will contain all updates.
I will be coordinating the updates for the Back/Bach Genealogy Society.If you have corrections or additions to the book send them to me at.

We will be restarting the BACH-BACK web site sometime in mid 2001.There are complications with the site that are not within our control that prevent us from starting it sooner.
If you are interested in the books on CD send me an E-mail and I will let you know when they are available.
