2.0 out of 5 stars useless May 9, 2008
By golson
This book has a very limited number of nicknames and misses many of the obvious from the time period. Unfortunately, the author has left no way to submit other nicknames to add to her collection (with sources) which would eventually, actually make this book useful.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not quite what I was looking for March 20, 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I was looking for a handful of specific nicknames, none of which I found in the book. However, it did have good general information otherwise.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must-have for genealogy! March 19, 2014
By J. Moon
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I cannot believe how useful this book has become when I work on our family tree! It has been a great resource when I come across certain times and communities that nicknamed everyone! It has also given me information regarding nicknames, that I never knew. Now, I couldn't live without it.
