Publisher: James V Poate, Edgware, Middlesex
ISBN: 0-9500-183-4-1

Rating: A

Online Review: The excellent genealogy, displaying all descendants in male and female lines, provides more than what genealogical books usually provide. This book is a gem, as well the production is beautiful.

Author: A de Faria
Published: 1908, 1909 Livourne

Rating: D+

Online Review: Good as an introduction, names are displayed but the genealogical data leaves a lot to be desired.

Title: Les Familles Princieres de l'Ancien Empire de Russie
(en emigration en 1978)  two volumes -French-
Author: Jacques Ferrand

Rating: C

Online Review: The main genealogies are very good but the 'grand pattern' connecting these families seems questionable/unreliable.

Author: John Fines
Published: 1970
Publisher: reprinted by Barnes & Noble by arrangement with John Fines
ISBN: 1-56619-716-3


Online Review:

Title: The royal family of Thailand, the descendants of King Chula-longkorn
Author: Jeffrey Finstone
Published: 1989 London, Bangkok

Rating: B

Online Review: Fully indexed genealogy, with charts, hundreds of pictures, appendices. A joy to browse, even if you are not acquainted with the subject. Half in Thai half in English, the dates are also given in two calendars.

Title: Ursprung des Adels in den Ostseeprovinzen Russlands
Author: Friedrich, Freiherr von Fircks
Published: 1843 Mitau/Leipzig

Rating: D

Online Review: Notes on Baltic nobility. Try Siebmacher's volume on the "Ostseeprovinzen" instead.

Title: Visitations of Yorkshire, 1584-5 and 1612
Author: Joseph Foster, editor
Published: 1875


Online Review:

Title: The Royal Lineage of Our Noble and Gentle Families
-2 volumes-
Author: Joseph Foster
Published: 1883, 1884

Rating: C

Online Review: Displaying royal descents, the majority from Edward I, in various formats. Some well-known erroneous descents are included and, alas
perpetuated by the unwary, but this seems inevitable. Compare it with Ruvigny's "Blood Royal of Britain".
