Because there has been some misunderstanding about this reprint, please read and understand the following. THIS "REPRINT" IS NOT THE SAME SIZE AS THE ORIGINAL 9" by 12" book. Content is the same but has been reduced to 8.5" by 11.0". It is printed on white paper, high resolution, black ink, with plastic comb binding. While the content and pictures are the same, the reprint is not identical in appearance, size or material of the original book.
The original book is now a collectors book. It was compiled from 1977 to 1980 and published in 1981. The original is an oversized 9" by 12" hardback, bound in black cloth with gold lettering and a color image of yesteryear Montgomery County set in on the front cover. Numerous family histories from Montgomery County include around 600 photo illustrations and over 1,000 family names. An updated index is available.
