About the Author
The late Dr. George Fraser Black, (1866-1948), a noted bibliographer and historical scholar on the staff of The New York Public Library from 1896-1931, spent almost half a century on the research of this volume. Miss Mary Elder Black, who had assisted her father in the preparation of the main text, also supplied the amendments and additions included as an appendix.

I find this very useful in geneaology work. Names change spelling over time and having the book makes it easier to trace people through the generations.
As with all books, look for other sources as this was a used book it is well worth the cheaper price. I have found this a value in genealogy research as some books are too expensive for their content.
