It's a great place to start, but check the entries against other later sources. There are errors. For instance, the Marston family entry repeats The Marston Genealogy tradition of Yorkshire origins, and brother relationship of Robert, William & John Marston ca. 1640 disproved by Holman's Marston English Ancestry 1929. These errors were frequently repeated by others.
