Could be better laid out,
This review is from: Understanding Documents for Genealogy & Local History (Paperback)
On the whole the book is quite helpful, particularly for those needing help with Scottish genealogy as I did.
I felt that valuable space was taken up by including the Latin Grammar section, since anyone learning Latin would already have a comprehensive grammar book, and what was in this book is not nearly enough for one learning Latin. Some common Latin words and phrases would suffice, with, perhaps, some vocabulary and the roman numerals.
The most frustrating thing about this book is the lack of chapter headings at the top of each page, so for anyone using it whilst doing some serious genealogical research as I did, has to constantly flick backward and forward throughout the whole book looking for a particular section or paragraph I had read previously. Eventually I pencilled-in the chapter heading at the top of every page!
