Scribner Multimedia Family History


Family History CDs

Available for Purchase -- Would You Like A Multimedia History of Your Scribner Family On A Disk Of Your Own?

We've heard you..... We have created a multimedia presentation for the family of John Scriven of Dover, New Hampshire, as descended through his eldest son John Scribner, Sr. and then through John's son Edward Scribner, who moved to Waterboro, York County, Maine.  This multimedia family history  CD is now available for purchase.  Actually, this works well for us because we are using all net proceeds from the sale of the CDs to support the hosting of this website. 

bulletWhen we initially made the decision to set up this cooperative website, we opted for commercial hosting rather than the free Rootsweb hosting.  Although we recognized the cost in doing so, we were also aware of the limitations of the free webhosting, and the extra tools that the commercial hosting would provide.  Thus, the concept of a revenue generating support tool was born! 
bulletAt that point, Laura Cooper Fenimore utilized the wonderful research of Ray Scribner to develop an early Scribner family history narrative in multimedia format.  The content was originally available for download through a FlipAlbum online streaming format.  However, we ran into continued difficulties in finding reasonably priced server space for the streaming multimedia downloads.  Dial-up connections are painfully slow in the multimedia era, and rather than paring back the content, we opted instead to offer an alternative for Scribner families and interested researchers who did not have broadband, or who just wanted to get copies for their own families.  Thus, the CD Sales came into being!
bulletFortunately for our group, the CD sales have generated just enough revenue to keep the webhosting afloat for this massive endeavor!  So, if you are considering a CD purchase, remember that you are also supporting the hosting of our fabulous commercial website!  ALL net proceeds of the sale are utilized to fund the hosting of this website.  [Have you noticed how much we have here now?  This website now consists of thousands of HTML pages, including an outstanding image archive!] {Laura has nightmares about screwing up the backups!  That's why she sends them to Perry for safekeeping.}

What others have said about the CD:

Lois Hill, February, 2003:

"My CD is running perfectly. It's a beautiful piece of work. The graphics are out of this world! I love reading all the history. I would definitely recommend this CD to others! The pricing is certainly fair. I will continue to enjoy it for years to come and hope that my grandchildren will do the same. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!"

We have set up a merchant account with PayPal that will allow you to purchase the multimedia volumes online.  Currently, the overall presentation is separated into 9 FlipAlbum "volumes" [the separation is due to a memory resource limitation in the FlipAlbum creation software].  This is a self-playing CD with nine volumes spanning PreNorman English History through the American Revolutionary War and shortly thereafter.  We used to offer single volumes, but people only purchased the entire set, so I am going to simplify things and just offer the whole set for one flat price with no shipping or handling add-ons.  The cost of the CD is $20.00 [U.S.], and that includes all shipping and handling charges [within the Continental U.S. or Canada]. 


We have simplified the process with the above "CLICK TO BUY NOW" button, and you will be redirected to PayPal to process the order.  Once there, you will either login or create an account using a major credit card.

Unfortunately, we only have a version for PC [no Mac version].  If you are interested in a Mac version, please let us know -- if we get enough requests we will seriously consider the matter.

  If you have any questions about this before purchase, please e-mail the webmaster.
