The EXCERPTS section is a chronological arrangement consisting of brief descriptions of the articles selected for their genealogical value. These articles are those with heavy emphasis on personal names. Some of the excerpts are quite lengthy. The INDEX section is an alphabetical listing of surnames, followed by the page number(s) within the EXCERPT section where that last name appeared. NOTE: Maurice Holmes is currently working on a second volume covering the period 1866-1870(?). It will be the same style of index and will be made available as a hard bound book at a cost of about $18. Write for availability.
