This book is a genealogical treasure! My grandmother left to me family information that she had handwritten and I was amazed to find so much of it in print. There are also many other family lines included in this amazing work. I've searched for years for much of the information included in this book. I am so glad that it was finally digitalized. Thank you Google and thank you Harvard!
