Q. Stumped by a strange word or phrase in an old document?
A. Not anymore!

How many times, while searching through old letters, manuscripts, or court records, have you come across an unfamiliar term or abbreviation and wondered what it meant? These are the times we all wish we had a specialist standing by to explain such obscure references.

Here`s a book that does just that. It`s a compilation of thousands of little-used or old-fashioned words and abbreviations that you might encounter in the course of your research. It`s the kind of book that pays for itself the first few times you use it by helping you interpret old records accurately and make your work time more productive.

Many kinds of terms are included here, such as: Medical, Geographical, Foreign, Historical, Legal, Relational, Occupational, Household, Religious, Colloquial, Monetary, Ethnic.

Also included: a quick list of nicknames and of Dutch given names.

Cost: $14.95 + tax, shipping & handling
