2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Nick D. Swanstrom on June 5, 2008
Format: Paperback
Be aware that the title of this book is misleading. For example, I was interested in how this subject related to Ontario County, NY, to aid me with genealogical work. You have to read the preface to find out that, instead of 1 book, this work was scheduled to be broken into a total of 4. This book being the 1st of the series, I have been unable to find the other 3 (in particular, that involving Ontario County entitled, "Phelps & Gorham's Purchase - Ontario & Yates" being book 3 of 4 in the series). His work regarding each of the counties mentioned in the title apparently were relegated to "supplement" status, appearing in the back of each book (as was the case with the 1st one, involving the County of Monroe, NY). Even the Table of Contents appeared at 461 of this book (in front of the Appendix). All in all, while the general historical information is good, I generously gave it a 3 of 5 stars as regards what I was looking for. Quite frankly, I think I could have gotten as much information if I'd have just gone on-line to [...] historical on-line books...
