Historical and Biographical Annals of Berks County, Pennsylvania, embracing A Concise History of the County and a Genealogical and Biographical Record of Representative Families (2 vols.)
by Montgomery, Morton L. (compiler)
Chicago: J. H. Beers & Co, 1909. Hardcover. G+ (Books have moderate wear and aging to bindings, esp. along edges; with much soiling to outer boards; pages are tanning lightly from edges; books are intact and pages and plates are generally clear.). 2 vols. Dark brown cloth boards with brown leather spines and corners; gilt letters on spines; gilt edges all around; 1723 pp., 207 BW illus. The mammoth two-volume set of this history and biography of Berks County, Pennsylvania. About one-quarter of the set contains historical essays; the rest is left to biographical profiles of many of the residents and historical figures of the county. It is said that compiler and lawyer Morton L. Montgomery issued questionnaires in order to acquire the information and that he did not confirm any of the genealogical details on his own. Still, this is a tremendous resource for historians and genealogists alike, and in good enough condition that it would be a welcome asset to any local history library, private or public.
