This section of my site contains selections from readings that relate to my genealogy research. It all needs an historical setting. I trust that the excerpts here are inoffensive use of the material, quoted as in a book review, and being meant to encourage reading --- buying, if possible -- the entire work. Some of the titles found here are out of print, but I have gotten them at used bookstores. Others can be ordered readily.
