Or if you prefer formal titles, The Omnibus Ancestry: 619 Documented American and European Lines. This newly revised edition extends many ancestral lines, drops a small handful, and adds over 30 new ones since the 2nd edition. As indicated by the title, a total of 619 are now covered, with many carried back to about the year 1350. This is the most up-to-date and definitive ancestry of the Boles-Bowers and Barth-Hickey families across their many limbs and branches.
The book updates numerous previous publications in handy, condensed, corrected, and referenced form. Besides the previous editions of The Omnibus Ancestry, the 10 books it updates include:

Notes are used to elaborate on the text, to explain the logic behind conclusions, to indicate where further generations may be found before 1350, to provide references, and to make suggestions for further research. However, the notes are listed separately and do not intrude should you prefer a smooth reading of the text.
