Be forewarned: the work is very uneven. Respected genealogist Donald Lines Jacobus says of it:
As no references are given, users of the Compendium cannot determine how authentic any specific statement is, and because of the high proportion of known errors, conscientious genealogists do not use statements made in this work without verification. It is often a useful reference work for those who know how to employ it properly and who do not trust its statements too implicitly. (Genealogy as Pastime and Profession, 2nd ed., p.53)
