    Must Have for Serious Researchers

    Using all 15 published Federal census reports (1790-1930) as his primary source, Mr. Johnson, has listed over 14000 persons born with the Hurt surname. For persons living prior to 1790 census, he used information contained in Oscar Hurt's work entitled 'The Early Hurt Family of Virginia and to whom he gives full credit. This book is a great source for people who do not have access to all of the census records. I also use the book to quickly verify information that I have obtained by different sources. I have used it to help people search in the right direction for their line. Mr. Johnson acknowledges that the book is not without error but the data is reproduced as he found it, free of speculation and assumption. As he so aptly says, 'I leave the adventure of proving or disproving said evidence to those with more knowledge of the subject.' And it is an adventure, searching old records for hints of relatives, and this is why this book is so important a reference because you have an abundance of information in one book that can be used as a directional guide.
