Sam Teddy Publishing is the end result of over 20 years’ of genealogical and historical research of Jeffrey A. Linscott, an amateur genealogist, historian and author.
Mr. Linscott has been working in the genealogy-history aspects of his life since 1985 and has published several family history books, all related to families of his own or his wife's, as well as a book reprint (see below) and a book index (see below), both of which are now available from Sam Teddy Publishing. He entered the U.S. Air Force right out of high school in 1974 and retired from that branch of service in 1994. He and his wife reside in South China, Maine, with their brood of 5 poodles. They have two grown children, residing in Colorado and Oregon.
Credits to Mr. Linscott include a 1998 reprint of The May-Flower & Her Log, by Azel Ames (Heritage Books, Bowie, MD, softcover, ISBN 0-7884-1070-9, now out of print), and Ohio Soldiers Who Served in the War of 1812 (Genealogical Services, West Jordan, UT, hardcover, ISBN 0-89593-999-1). Both of these volumes are now available from Sam Teddy Publishing.
Mr. Linscott has also self-published over a dozen family histories and has published (is publishing) The Linscott Herald, a Linscott family newsletter, now in its 21st year, and The Whitcomb Wheel, a family newsletter of the Whitcomb family, now in its 9th year.
A sad note to pass on to any followers of my family. The "Sam" part of Sam Teddy Publishing has passed away this past July (2013) and he is sorely missed. Sam Teddy was named for the two male mini-poodles of our family, Sammy Boy and Teddy Bear (actually, Momma's Little Teddy Bear III), which are also father and son. Sadly, after 16 years of a great life, and siring about 2 dozen puppies, Teddy being one of the last ones, Sammy succumbed to his age and was put to rest.
