of descendant information, this volume also includes genealogy research
terminology and definitions; old-time occupational terminology and
definitions; old-time medical terminology and definitions; a relationship chart; 1,161 photos (twenty-one
of which were added after the cover design’s completion); a specially made Family Group Sheet; which
