Wow, I feel so much smarter after just reading the first three chapters! A very useful handbook for conquering Scottish systems of record keeping.

Arrived on time, but was not what I had hoped it would be. I thought it would be more genealogy, but it's not quite what I had in mind, which is no fault of the book itself, I guess - just my expectations of it.
