About my libraryI have a very large library of books, and have only cataloged the genealogy books to date. I will be working on the remainder in the coming months.
I also have a massive collection of music CD. These include classical music (especially oboe music), opera, big bands and vocalists from the 1920s to the mid-1950s, film soundtracks from the same period, as well as great female vocalists of the 1920s to the present. I plan to catalog the entire collection during the winter months.
