1.0 out of 5 stars A book about Scottish genealogy re-jacketed, 3 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Welsh Genealogy (Paperback)
I was required to purchase Bruce Durie's book about Scottish Genealogy for a course, as it was 'essential reading'.
Little did I realise that I would be purchasing very similar content when ordering his title Welsh Genealogy. If I had the time I would share with you exactly how many pages are completely identical. I completely endorse the other comments made by reviewers with regards to the Sottish content being transferred across to this new title. The editing is truly awful (has it been proof-read?) also with maps mis-labelled, and completely irrelevent content that was obviously submitted just to fulfil some kind of publisher's required quota. Clans and tartans - I ask you!
There are also substantial ommissions in this work, particularly with regards to Welsh background history. e.g No mention of the 'Blue Books' with regards to social and religious history.
Shame on both author and publisher. Don't buy this, borrow it if you really must.
