Format: Hardcover
I must say that Amazon didn't say that the book I purchased was a set. I chose the book that had 2400 plus pages, and it did in fact turn out to be the 3 volume set. It is a must have set of books for the geneology buff.
I have found numerous ancestors in these books. I would highly recommend them.
The excitement of finding my ancestors signature from 250 years ago was the best part!!!

There are many versions of this set of books floating around on the Internet and otherwise. What is not obvious is that THIS set offers a lot MORE. It contains copies of the original lists, transcriptions of those lists, and an index. I have never seen another version of this set anywhere that includes all THREE.

I have been researching family history for 10 years and offering free lookup services to others for three. This set is truly a gem in my collection. If you have the extra money to spend, BUY THIS SET! You won't regret it!

This set of books was purchased as a gift for Mom, who is 93, sharp as a tack, and has devoted a good deal of her life to genealogy; she has published a few books and she shows up on Amazon and in research sections of a few libraries... She loved this set and has not stopped referring to them since receiving them as a gift. She said they were excellent and I trust her judgement.
