This book is EXTREMELY complete. Even if your ancestor died in outer space on the way to another planet it's covered here (I'm not kidding...see page 146.) You'll find a thorough list of peerage and nobility titles--from Abeto (an Ethopian prince) to Zar--a list of the names and codes for all the Mormon temples (over 100)...and how to submit names for temple ordinances...plus a list of all the world's major religions from atheist to zoroastrianism. Do you have tribal or "patronymic" names in your family? No problem. Civil, military and religious titles? Included. What to do with missing or incomplete dates and other information, even unusual situations that only occur in certain countries or periods? It's covered. Slawson has done her homework: you probably won't have a question that she has not answered crisply on one of the thoroughly researched and well-indexed pages of this new book (the index alone is 27 pages).Read more ›
It tells you how to record what you find and gave me ideas I never thought of to continue my research. I would recommend it to everyone doing family history.
