This is a phenomenal find for our family. My uncle and cousin first found that it existed on a visit to Washington DC years ago. Later we found that it had been reprinted in 2000 by Lawrence P Kauffman, Jr, to whom we are very grateful. Several of us in my generation purchased copies so it will be passed on.
This record contains information down to my father and his siblings, who appear in the Jacob Coffman records on page 659.
Since I have worked with computers for many years, I'm trying to find a means to extract the data from the PDF version using the Symbols and Abbreviations info on page vi to construct a searchable database that would also contain the textual information this work contains.
I love this book. It has helped me with following my ancestors. I bought the book but am missing pages 470 and 471. Can anyone help?
