Your Family Memoirs main page

At Becker's Books we are known for our aggressive book buying policies and are often called in to buy estates. Of all the treasures that can be found the most precious are the hand-written diaries and letters kept within families for years. One such estate was purchased by us several years ago and has created countless hours of amusement and detective work for us. While researching the historical information contained in this estate purchase the idea to begin a Texas Club (which you can read about in more detail by clicking here) along with organizing a publishing house emerged. This would give individuals the chance to permanently record their history or histories of others that they find interesting. Our primary interest is in the 19th century when CDV's or carte de viste photos were the main method of photography and electric lighting was a brand new invention.
