Lancaster, OH, September 27, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- Outskirts Press, Inc. has published The Miesse Family Their Westward Trek Volume I: Johann Daniel and The Descendants of sons Jacob, Joseph, and Abraham by Dorothy Hudson and Mary Harrell Sesniak. The authors’ most recent book to date is a 8.25 x 11 paperback in the historical biography category and is available worldwide on book retailer websites such as Amazon and Barnes & Noble. The webpage at www.outskirtspress.com/themiessefamily was launched simultaneously with the book's publication.
The Miesse book has been many years in the making. The Miesse family tree began with the works of Ezra Miesse, George A. Katzenberger, Milton Arnold, and Anthony J. Ruble who encouraged their families to keep good records. Ezra, George, and Anthony each compiled a self-published book.
As Dorothy Ruble Hudson traveled around the country in search of genealogical roots, many amazing surprises were uncovered about her Miesse Family. New cousins were found, including Mary Harrell-Sesniak with whom Hudson decided to co-author the Miesse Book. While both researched all Miesse descendants, the project was divided into two parts, each beginning with the adventurous life of their emigrant father, Johann Daniel Miesse.
In Volume I, the reader will be fascinated by the exciting accounts of his sons, Jacob, Joseph, Abraham and their descendants as written by Dorothy Ruble Hudson in cooperation with Mary Harrell-Sesniak. With Hudson’s assistance, Harrell-Sesniak wrote the enthralling legacies of Johann Daniel’s children, Elizabeth, John, Daniel and their lines.
Through the authors’ different styles, the highly successful completion of this Miesse historical resource will be invaluable to descendants as they enjoy the rich collections of ancestral stories, documents and photos. In the spirit of their forefathers’ dreams, the authors encourage readers to record their family history at the end of the book.
684 pages in length, The Miesse Family Their Westward Trek Volume I: Johann Daniel and The Descendants of sons Jacob, Joseph, and Abraham is being aggressively promoted to appropriate markets with a focus on the historical biography category. With U.S. wholesale distribution through Ingram and Baker & Taylor, and pervasive online availability through Amazon, Barnes & Noble and elsewhere, The Miesse Family Their Westward Trek Volume I meets consumer demand through both retail and library markets with a suggested retail price of $35.95.
Additionally, The Miesse Family Their Westward Trek Volume I can be ordered by retailers or wholesalers for the maximum trade discount price set by the author in quantities of ten or more from the Outskirts Press Direct bookstore at www.outskirtspress.com/bookstore.
