5.0 out of 5 stars THE BANTA GENEALOGY September 14, 2000
Format:Hardcover
SINCE I AM A DESCENDANT OF EPKE JACOBSE BANTA, THIS WAS A WONDERFUL SOURCE OF INFORMATION FOR MY RESEARCH ON THE BANTA FAMILY. I WAS ABLE TO TRACE MY ANCESTORS BACK TO THE 1600'S WHEN THEY CAME TO THE UNITED STATES FROM HOLLAND. THIS BOOK WAS VERY WELL WRITTEN AND EASY TO UNDERSTAND. I WAS ABLE TO OBTAIN THE NAMES OF MY ANCESTORS THROUGH TEN GENERATIONS. THIS IS AN EXCELLENT BOOK TO PURCHASE, IF YOU ARE AN ANCESTOR TO THE BANTA FAMILY AND ARE INTERESTED IN THIS FAMILY'S RICH HISTORY.

5.0 out of 5 stars The bible for Banta genealogy January 2, 2008
Format:Hardcover
This excellent book is the genealogical bible for the Banta family. It was written by Theodore Milton Banta in 1893. If you are a Banta or related to a Banta and can trace your Banta family back to the late 1800s, this book will likely help you trace your Banta Genealogy back to Epke Jacobse, progenitor of the Banta family in the new world. Epke left Friesland, Holland, for the new world in 1659 with his wife and five sons. The sons took the surname of Banta. All dutch bantas are decendants of Epke and his five sons.

1.0 out of 5 stars Banta Genealogy----A hard to figure out compilation April 12, 2002
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
I have read a former review of this book. Perhaps I don't have the same book; but I found the text to be very poorly written, difficult to connect the genealogical dots, and filled with a numerical ancestry formulation which is NEVER EXPLAINED. My copy is called: "The Banta Genealogy---A Frisian Family" By Theodore M. Banta (NY: 1893); Reprinted by "Bergen Historic Books" (NJ: 1997).
I am at a loss to figure out the numerical cryptic codes in this book. I feel this book lacks comprehensive historic continuity. It is confusing. Yes, I have found my ancestors; but this book lacks clarity.
