Folks, sooner or later - Genealogists are going to realize that their family kinfolks are laying on some dealer's dusty shelves. If I can contribute to finding one little name or photo of that long lost ancestor you have been waiting to find, - its worth all the time I spend.
THE MEN OF
Folks, in the old west – there were many great ranches. Here is the story entitled “THE MEN OF MILLER-LUX” by Orville Foster who writes of Henry Miller (i.e. Kreiser) and Charles Lux who put together one of the greatest ranches of early pioneer time. Their spread covered acreage in California, Oregon, Nevada and at one time the ranch was the major meat supplier for all of the California area. This tells of the brands, the acquisitions, the stories of success and failures which presents the whole picture – livestock, canals, dams, hotels, stores, meat markets, banks, wholesale and retail marketing, and slaughterhouses facilities in San Francisco which -
UNDOUBTEDLY SURPASSED ALL OTHERS.
Please read this. There were many a western story published – the common ones about cowboy and Indians are listed on Ebay every day but the rarer ones about the great ranchers and ranches of the old west like this one are seldom found. Collectors treasure them and their price guide value rises every day. They are hard to find. I hunt them out cause really the better, untold and rarer stories were published in the rest.
Here’s one of ‘em.

Following my retirement, I have dedicated my remaining hours to indexing the Genealogy of our western pioneers. During my research, I discovered that thousands of our kinfolk lay unfound and unrecognized on some book dealer’s shelf gathering dust. Because Old Western History and Memorabilia was printed before computer indexing, I index every item I sell.
This complete index will be bound and included in this offering at no additional cost.

THE MEN OF MILLER-LUX
by Orville Foster
MILLER-LUX MEMORABILIA IS RAPIDLY DISAPPEARING
While others clip ads from magazines, I save history. It’s a shame that our past is being lost. It’s as simple as that.
My wife kids me that after I find a piece I like, buy it, read it, research it, take a picture, scan it, write the blurb, pay the Ebay entry fee and commission, that I end up making about 50 cents an hour. But, OH HOW I LOVE THIS OLD WESTERN HISTORY. What a story, Rare Story!!! Great Pictures. You will love it as it was published in this old complete western magazine of many years ago. The issue is in excellent condition, the cover is pristine and in vibrant color.
As clearly stated in my description, this is featured story in a rarely found and seldom read unusual and complete western magazine. I don't give out name of publication or date because I have caught competitors copying my index and work and trying to sell it as theirs. I hope you understand.
