Most Helpful Customer Reviews

20 of 20 people found the following review helpful By Mark Howells on January 4, 2001
Format: Paperback
This little gem is an A to Z dictionary containing brief definitions of thousands of words which family historians may encounter.
What's cornage?
What did a furner do for work?
What was kept in a neatry?
Who worked with St. Hugh's bones?
The answers can all be found in the Concise Genealogical Dictionary.
This dictionary will be particularly helpful to family historians confronted with estate inventories which have archaic terms for household goods or farm implements, for translating obscure causes of death, or for determining occupations based on slang or colloquial expressions.
It's a handy little volume to have about.

This book is really a must for the serious family history researcher. It is a dictionary of the plethora of terms that one comes across in puzzlement while doing this type of research and includes specialized terminology, foreign language terms, and abbreviations that one often comes across.

This book does exactly what I wanted it to do. Condition rating correct. Many abrevations have more than one meaning. It get you thinking of other possibilities of research.

It's informative, whimsical, educational. and entertaining -- perfect for the beginner interested in deciphering some of the tricky writings of previous centuries. I liked it so much I ordered another one for a relative also doing genealogy - the condition description of the book said "good" but I don't think it was ever used - perfect!
