The second edition of Bentley's County Courthouse Book joins her Genealogist's Address Book (LJ 4/1/95. 3d ed.) to provide essential resource tools for genealogists and other researchers. An exhaustive revision of the 1990 original (LJ 9/1/90), this edition features updated coverage of 3,125 county jurisdictions and 1,577 New England towns and independent Virginia cities. This and other information was primarily obtained through a questionnaire yielding a 65 percent response rate. Entries for each county courthouse are arranged by state and county and give the current address and phone number. While this book will be heavily used by myriad genealogists around the world, it can also be useful to other researchers regarding land title, property rights, and inheritance. Libraries that bought the 1990 edition will need to purchase this second edition, since it will be essential to both the institutional and home market for genealogists and others whose research demands these resources.-Judith P. Reid, Library of Congress
