A six star book. It will take me years to go through all my ancestors, and the information is extensive, referenced, all and more than I had hoped for.

This book provides detailed information about descents from the Plantagenet Kings of England for over 185 individuals who emigrated from the British Isles to the North American colonies in the seventeenth century. It combines research in original documents with the use of published literature and features new ancestral lines for virtually all American colonists who possess royal ancestry, with many corrections to existing lines. Broader in scope than seventeenth-century colonial genealogy, however, it covers every prominent family in medieval England.
Plantagenet Ancestry treats all known descents, both legitimate and illegitimate, for seventeenth-century colonists from Geoffrey Plantagenet, Count of Anjou (died 1151), founder of the Plantagenet dynasty which ruled England from 1154 to 1485. It features hundreds of biographical summaries as well as over 14,000 citations to published materials, making it the most documented source book of its kind. The format and extensive cross-referencing make the text simple to follow. Moreover, extensive lists of descendants are provided, allowing the reader to see at a glance which immigrants descend from which family. In addition, the book includes a massive 75-page bibliography -- probably the most exhaustive listing for royal and noble genealogy ever published -- a special study of "king's kinsfolk," and an index of over 10,000 entries.
Plantagenet Ancestry also features scores of remarkable discoveries that are certain to change the ancestry charts of many living Americans. New colonial immigrants are likewise included in the work, linking still more seventeenth-century immigrants to the kings of England, making it as up-to-date and comprehensive as possible.
