"Mary Harmon's Swink books will be quality work. I worked with her on her research, and she is having them done to reflect well on her work." --Betsy Pittman, author, genealogist and historian; Burke County Genealogical Society

"Mary Harmon's Swink family history is nothing less than THE authorative work on this family. Future generations will proudly recognize her THE authority. Of her two volumes, an entire volume containing references speaks for itself. I have never seen a family as replete with accurate documentation than this. I highly recommend this to anyone with Western North Carolina interests. In addition, anyone familiar with Gateway Publishers will recognize the quality they represent. "
--Derick S. Hartshorn, author, genealogist and historian.


I am taking orders for this 2-volume set of books. They will be published by Gateway Press, the foremost publisher of genealogical and historical books.

Orders can still be placed after June 30, 2007
until the publishing order quantity is reached.

Anyone interested in receiving additional information, please provide me your mailing address. You can e-mail me at harm8308@bellsouth.net.

I will, in turn, send you an Order Form to be filled out
and returned along with your check or money order.
The two-volume, 983 page set of books is $140.00 including S&H.

This is the chance of a lifetime for any descendant of the SWINK's to learn of their ancestry. This has been a huge task and has taken several years to produce. These books cover many different surnames as well as well as the Swink surname. You must quickly place an order for these books or be forever left out. Lead time required by the printer ensures that these books will be ready to ship by September, 2007.

Please don't miss out. This is a very limited printing
and future reprints are not anticipated.
