True-- Jules Verne didn’t write a thing that I can pretend is remotely genealogy-related, but he did write some stirring, sometimes prescient novels that have aged quite well, thank you very much. Many of his books are available as free ebooks and audio books at Project Gutenberg. A list of all things Verne is here:


Hint: just discovering Le Grande Jules? Try Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea, Five Weeks In a Balloon, or Journey to the Center of the Earth. My local library had a big Verne collection in wonderful old hardbound volumes, and one summer I read nearly everything Verne that they had. Le Grande Jules knew how to pull out all the stops when the story required it-- it’s why people still read his books, and why they’re still making movies from those books…
