First published in 1950, this classic improves with each new edition; "bad" lines are excised completely each time, the lengthy text-notes are very useful, and extensive citations appear for almost every entry. There's hardly a noble family in Europe west of the Dnieper River that does not appear in this book. Dr. Weis died in 1966 and Sheppard, himself a renowned genealogist, undertook (very successfully) to maintain his high standards; the 4th and subsequent editions have been the result of his own editorial labors. A very inexpensive work, especially compared to many of the other titles in this list; this one should be on every genealogist's bookshelf.; 148-17;kredietwaardig 3
