Welcome to genealogy!I have been in this for about 5 years or so. I have done genealogy research in this county for over 100 people! I have also done complete family trees dating back to the Puritans and back to the year 580 in France. I started out with finding my own family tree and then helping relatives break through brick walls such as you have now! It took me 1 hour to break through a wall that a cousin took 5 years to try to break through. Anybody with ancestors in this county can be traced through the county genealogy library which has data dating back to 1778. I know the book you mentioned which is in the library, which I have used many times before.
