Have had a copy of this book since 1995. I'm so grateful to William E. Morris for all the hard and tedious work he did in compiling the information for this book. He didn't have the benefit of being able to email people and getting quick responses. It took him a few years to do this. It's been an invaluable resource for me in researching my Resseguie family. I'm a descendant of Alexander Resseguie through his son James. James died in King George's War possibly in the battle of Fort Louisbourg. I recommend this book for anyone researching the Resseguie Family.

This is a wonderful resource for anyone that is of the Resseguie line. I, myself, am descended from Hannah Resseguie b.1757 d.1827. I'm very glad it has made its way to digitization so that some who don't have the means to travel to find such wonderful resources can still make use of them.
