The definitive book for sourcing all and any kind of information found regarding genealogy. I love this book! It's indispensable. I wish I had purchased this book back in 2007 when it was originally published. I have the 3rd printing, 2015 edition.

Some quotes were included more than once under different relevant topics. Each attributable quotation is cited in the endnotes. An index of persons quoted is included.
