Janaway Publishing, Inc., opened in 1999 and is a family-owned publishing company and bookstore, specializing in historical and genealogical material, located in Santa Maria, on the Central Coast of California. This Website, www.JanawayGenealogy.com, is our retail arm, where our books and materials, as well as those of most all genealogical publishers, are available for purchase. We maintain a large number of titles, and can find many publications for you that are difficult to locate, or that are no longer in print. All of our retail sales are conducted exclusively through our catalog, the Internet and mail order.
Since opening our doors in 1999, many changes have taken place. Our publishing business continues to increase the number of titles in print, as well as attracting more authors. Byron Sistler and Associates, Inc., a genealogy book publisher of Tennessee and Kentucky records for more than 40 years, has now permanently moved their entire inventory to Janaway Publishing, Inc., who will continue publishing all of Sistler's books under the Janaway Publishing imprint. Indian Scout Books, which had long been a leading book seller and publisher of Native American books and material, was acquired and moved to Janaway, which greatly expanded our Native American selections. The growth of our division specializing in digital reprints of old, out-of-print books, as well as our partnerships with other publishers, now provide us with access to over 20,000 out-of-print titles in our "Print-on-Demand" Catalog.
We are always seeking manuscripts from authors of local histories, and transcriptions of original records, such as wills, deeds, tax records, court records, military records, birth and death records, marriage records, church records, and tombstone inscriptions. We have established a program for authors, which is fully described elsewhere on this Web site, and are actively seeking manuscript submissions.
