James Bluford Coffey, his ancestors and descendants in America

I often receive requests for information concerning the availability of the much sought after book, James Bluford Coffey, his ancestors and descendants in America by Marvin Dale Coffey. 

Marvin died several years ago but his research lives on in this book, as well as in version 2 of of his well researched family history.  Because it was privately printed and ordered directly from the author, not many copies were available to the thousands of Coffey researchers who wanted one.

Not all is lost, however.  The book is available on microfilm from the Mormon Library in Salt Lake City through your local Family History Library (FHL).  A search of the library catalog will provide more details about the book than I will list here but, these are the call numbers for both versions:

Call Number - Location - Status

929.273 C654cm - FHL FAM HIST Book - Available

929.273 C654cm v. 2 - FHL FAM HIST Book - Available

It has been some time since I've visited a FHL, but I believe that anyone wanting to read the book can simply order the film through their local FHL at minimal cost.  The librarian can provide exact details.
