More Information about this Book

Ideally every book review page on this site would include the contents, sample text and/or illustrations, whether there is an index, and particular features of specific interest to local and family historians. However I can provide a better service by including brief details of a large number of books, and only providing fuller details of a book when someone indicates an interest .

If you would like more information about this book tell me, including the title, and possibly including a brief mention of type of information you are looking for. I will try and provide a fuller review within the week, with special reference to your interests.
