You will find that there are no photos on the page. I do not have one of the books or I would have scanned them and added them to the page. What we have done is to tell what the photo was and added the caption of the photo.
There is three ways that you can use this. First, you can go to the Title page and read the book from cover to cover. Second, you can go to the Table of Contents and go to any particular Chapter. Third, You can go to the Surname Index and find your surname. After finding your surname, Click on the page number after the name and it will take you to the page that the name is mentioned on.
There is a lot of links to this. I have tried to check each link to make sure it is working, but I could have missed some. If anyone finds a broken link, please let me know. Make sure you tell me what the link is that is not working properly.
