    This book contains great historical information on early settlers in Virginia and has been added to our genealogy library collection. I would recommend the book for those studing early colonial history.

    This book is a wonderful book for finding information on the earliest European settlers of Virginia. Anyone who has researched their ancestry back to Jamestown will find this book invaluable. It is well researched and corrects some mistakes that have crept in to some genealogies and provides basic information and sources for many settlers. Like all big books, it is bound to have a few minor errors, such as the one I found where it suggested a settler named Collins who had killed his wife was executed by hanging him from his thumbs. I have read elsewhere that this was the torture they inflicted upon him until he confessed. Still, anyone interested in Jamestown or early Virginia history would find this book worth while as well.

    Wonderful genealogical resource!! Even met Ms. McCartney at a seminar where she was speaking and she signed my book. She is a fountain of genealogical information, she is an excellent researcher, you can depend on the information she give as true and accurate. One note, the information she gives are short snippets on each person so further research on each person may be desired.
