So, we've come come to the Germantown Public Library here in Germantown, Ohio. Imagine my excitement when I see on the shelf a compiled family history on one of the families I am working on.
Hard bound in its fancy binding, it's quite a thing sitting there on the shelf, calling out to me...
I remove it from the shelf to see the absolute worst written family history book ever. 552 pages of nothing but names and dates. To some that is no biggie, but tell me please, how it is that you can write a book on family history and not include NOT ONE PLACE NAME in the entire book?
Did I mention no index as well?
Sadly, same book is now resting back on sad shelf.... Ironically, what little I saw, I knew more than the author who "compiled" said work anyway!
