Harshman Family History

Book by Charles William Harshman


I recently found a book about the Harshman, Hershman, and Hersman family on a thrift store bookshelf. It seemed unlikely that anyone of that name would ever find the book where it was, so I decided to try to place the book with an appropriate owner via the internet.

So, if your family lines include the Harshmans, Hershmans, or Hersmans, and you'd like to own this book, please contact me. You can have the book for $6. I paid $1 for it, and I'm asking for $5 to wrap it and ship it to you.

Here are the details:

Title: The Harshman Family, Also Spelled Hershman and Hersman: A History and Genealogy,
Author: Charles William Harshman
Publisher: Spanish American Institute Press, Los Angeles, 1932
Binding: Hardback, 352 pages
Condition: Some handwritten notes inside and a few dings on the cover. Binding threads are still intact and all pages present, but the glue on the spine is cracking a little. The book still has potential for many years of gentle use.

Hello Genevieve: I'm glad you found a buyer for the Harshman Family History. Charles Harshman was my uncle Cory Harshman's father. After decades of additional research, Uncle Cory and his wife, my Aunt Mavourneen Harshman, did a multiple volume follow up to Charles' book. I wish I had seen this post, but hope that "KC" is a Harshman relative and is giving the book a good home :)

Cheers!

I looked it up in my email. The lady that got the book said that her grandmother's maiden name was Harshman.

CONTENTMENT: Keep your heart free from hate, your mind from worry, live simply, expect little, give much, sing often, pray always, forget self, think of others and their feelings, fill your heart with love, scatter sunshine. These are the tried links in the golden chain of contentment.

IT IS STILL BEST to be honest and truthful; to make the most of what we have; to be happy with simple pleasure; and to be cheerful and have courage when things go wrong.
(Laura Ingalls Wilder, 1867-1957)

Thanks for reading.
