"I just finished your Courthouse Research for Family Historians book
and then went to a lovely courthouse ... I had a new confidence and overview
of what was available there thanks to your book ... I've done courthouse
research a few times, and was on the way to becoming knowledgeable, but
your book got me around the corner. Your descriptions of how the records
are formed and how they come to be in the courthouse is invaluable. You
are such a good, clear, concise writer. And, there is even a little nurturing
in your book, for those who are a little nervous about going into the courthouse
... I will say that your courthouse book set me up well for ...[a] very
efficient use of my time ... Thanks again, for a simply scrumptious book.
It was like water to the parched in the desert." [Peggy Baldwin]

edition expanded 2007. The book was borne from the author's own frustration
many years ago as a novice, to finally discover after a long search for
non-existent ancestors, that "Patsy" was a common nickname for
Martha, "Sandy" for Alexander, "Left" for Eliphalet,
"Peter" for Patrick, and others. This led to the research of
nicknames, and publication of this book.
