I've seen no better genealogical source for getting the most out of estate inventories. The author's detailed analysis of these probate records will greatly enhance the reader's understanding of why it's important to closely examine these inventories - to gain a clear and complete understanding of decedents' lifestyles and to visualize their lives in a three-dimensional fashion. Highly recommended.

This book was so easy to read through (large appendix of vocabulary) that I read it just an afternoon! And what great information on those old, colonial documents my ancestors left behind. I can now better understand their social status, their possessions, and the present day value of what they owned. The charts on bring pounds and shillings into today's dollars are alone worth the price of the book!

Mr. Smith tells you what you need to know about reading early inventories and understanding them. He has also included an "uncommon words glossary."

The title and description of this book seemed promising. The promise didn't hold. The book was mired in unhelpful verbiage and vagueness, such as fifty "filler" pages, half the book, defining unimportant old word descriptions of property.
