Title: Ahnentafeln Paderborner Domherren -German-

Title: The Highland Clans
Author: Moncreiffe of that Ilk & David Hicks
Published: 1967,1968,1973, 1977
Publisher: Barrie & Jenkins
ISBN: 0-214-66649-2

Description: This book is not genealogy but contains much history as well as portraits. It can assist with genealogical details. In the front and back cover are conjectural family trees, connecting many of the clans. As it is only conjectural, don't use them as there are mistakes in them. It is definitely a kind of 'coffee table' book that is worth having or consulting.

Title: Le Grand dictionnaire historique -10 volumes-
Author: Louis Moreri
Published: 1759
Publisher: Les Libraires Associes, Paris

Rating: C

Online Review: This is a biographical dictionary that often contains very interesting genealogical details. There are several editions of this work, some translated into English. These editions vary in their coverage. Moreri tends to repeat his contemporary Pere Anselme. Nevertheless, he sometimes has
information that is otherwise not available. It should not be forgotten he was writing biographies not genealogy, so sometimes he does not state what we need to know. Also some of his data is questionable.

Title: The Plantagenet ancestry of King Edward III and Queen Philippa
Author: George Andrews Moriarty 1883-1968 (main author)
Published: 1985
Publisher: Mormon Pioneer Genealogy Society, Salt Lake City

Rating: B

Online Review: Moriarty is a respected specialist in English and European medieval genealogy. This book covers mainly royalty and nobility of England, France, Spain and Germany. One of the difficulties is that it is entirely handwritten. Also note that some advances have been made since its publication
