"Digging" contains full descriptions of eighteen different types of records, tips on how to find and understand them, and scores of entertaining quotations from the original documents. It also lists records available in print, typescript, and microfilm.

Ann Lainhart has filled a gaping hole in the genealogical literature by preparing this volume on New England town records -- The American Genealogist (TAG)

Just when you think there's nothing new... [we] are presented with an informative and inteeresting little gem like this book -- The Maine Genealogist

Such expertise could only have come by spending much time in the records -- National Genalogical Society Quarterly
