The following book review was written by Bobbi King:
This is a whopper of a book.
About a rather narrow set of research records: Vital records.
So what occupies nearly 700 pages of text?
Mr. Kemp surveyed every state of our Union, plus the U.S Territories and Commonwealths, and describes in his book how to obtain the vital records of births, marriages, deaths, divorces, and pre-adoption certificates from their government resources.
Then he goes on to describe the vital records of international countries from A (Afghanistan) to Z (Zimbabwe). I counted about 175 countries and provinces represented across the world.
