Review The more complete tool. If there are some reading errors, data is usually reliable. However, can be hard to understand for new genealogists and hard to use because names in the index are not standardized but as found in the records.

Now available on a CD-ROM (see RAB-PRDH) that should include a yearly upgrade.
