This book is really great, especially for us Fairbanks descendants. Not exactly light reading, but it is very interesting. My mom has a hard copy of this book. I used to love finding "funny" names in it.

Being of the Fairbanks lineage it is a great genealogy of the family. It is quite awesome to find the direct lineage of my particular part of the family. Really, really cool.
