Thanks for your inquiry and listing.
My book, "Forebears and Descendants of Landreth Pioneers",
is the result of over 27 years research. It has 430 pages 8 1/2 x 11
and is bound with a plastic spiral. Most people like it that way
because it will lay flat when opened. It is fully indexed. It is a
very good book. The current book is the Twenty-Third Edition.
The information in the book is professionally organized in a
genealogical manner. The numbering system is all my own and simple to
follow. My late wife and I traveled to all forty-eight states in
collecting the info. We sat in libraries, courthouses, state and
federal archives for weeks at a time. We made five trips to the Mormon
Family Research Center in Salt Lake City. We corresponded with
thousands of Landreths in USA, Canada, Australia, England, New Zealand
and probably others. We went to the Federal Archives and Record Center
in East Point GA many times for up to a week at a time.
There is a chapter in front of the book on Traditional Landreth
Ancient History. Most can trace their ancestry back to Patrick
Landreth born about 1580 in Scotland. It begins with the history in
1070 when the King of Scotland invited a Flemish Colony to settle
there. The next edition lends evidence that the Landreths originated
in Alsace-Lorraine, a strip of land between Germany and France...more
from France than Germany.
A further note...I have only a few copies left of the Twenty-Third
Edition. When these copies are gone, I do not intend to make more
copies of that edition. I am working on the TWENTY-FOURTH EDITION
which I hope to complete by late this fall.
I think I have pretty well described the book and its contents. You
can get what you need from this Email for your record. I am 83 years
Thanks again for your interest and support.
Best wishes.....Eugene Landreth
