“Arphax Publishing Company is a leading Historical Reference Publisher specializing in original land-ownership maps. Since 2005, we have published original-landowner map-books for 500 U.S. Counties. HistoryGeo.com represents a concept envisioned at the onset of our company’s creation and has been in the works, more or less, from the start. Trial applications were begun in 2007 and HistoryGeo.com actually represents the 4th-Generation application which has been in development.”

 GLHTA is going to subscribe to this database, HistoryGeo.com/libraries.  We have a trial account until the subscription is finalized.  The link is posted on the PPLS database list.  We have been receiving the books Arphax publishes for several years.  Now they have taken it to the next step and put the information from the books online.  It will be available at all PPLS libraries with “Library use only.” 

 Please visit www.historygeo.com/libraries.  It is “Library Use Only” so come to one of the 5 Plano Public Libraries to use it.

 To help you get started with our service/app, please watch our videos at: www.historygeo.com/videos
