Excellent resource for the Quinby/Quimby family written by an experienced genealogist with attention to facts, sources and multiple generations. Covers up to and including my grandmother and her marriage to a Hayden, another of the early immigrants to this country. My only regret about the book is a lack of the meticulous detail to the family by the time he was documenting those of the civil war era. My grandmother's father was a supporter of the Confederacy and there are no comments about his business dealings of any kind prior to or during the war. I understand completely that the book is/was not about the political activities of most of his entries, but the interactions during the difficulties of the early immigrants with Indians, England and Revolution is not neglected as is the civil war. I would still recommend it as thorough and informative, and a excellent reference for descendants of this family. I did ultimately purchase this book for my own use. bjbickham
