CD: The Search for the Ancestors and Descendants of Henry Brasater Drake
of Coles County, Illinois
Michael E. Drake
The latest edition of this work is an update. Originally, the book was designed as a guide to understanding the author’s wing of the family confirming for readers who they were and who they were not. For many it can be used as a quick reference as to where they fall into the picture of the Drake family in America. It is a time ordered narrative. The author tells the story of his search for ancestors as it unfolded. Moreover, it is a detective story that gets partially solved. In that regard it is like all family histories. No matter how much research is done, there is always another generation to be uncovered. The story will always have a beginning and middle, but it will never have an end. That’s genealogy. The book is presented as graphic images, so the user sees the work just as it was originally published. It is intended to look and function very much like a "real" book. There is no electronic index, and there is no electronic text to search. However, numerous electronic bookmarks have been added which make it easy to move through the book. Image numers will match the page numbers for all of the main text, as well as the index. Any unnumbered portraits and illustrations are at the back of the actual file, to keep page numbering consistent.
