This is perhaps one of the more important sources found within my family. Digging through our basement, my dad and I found this book with has hundreds of names on my moms side of the family. The author is unknown but it is dates New Years Day 1970. This contains a lot of important details on the persons in this book such as places of employment, residences, schools they attended, military service, and biographies. My dad added quite a bit of the content into the family tree, although I have been citing it and adding the extra information. Quite tedious, but worth it in the long run.
An example of the format, here is the first entry in the book with my third great grandfather John Bartholomew Oliver of Galway, Ireland.
