This book is basically a source book of genealogical data rather than a collection of family histories. Genealogical information on each county is uniform and is arranged in the following manner: 1) the boundary line and establishment by law of each county, 2) a synopsis of the earliest court records pertaining to the county, 3) a list of pioneering families according to the 1810 federal census, and various county Tax Lists, 4) finally Marriage Records of various southeastern KY counties.  There are additional sections that cover lists of Revolutionary, War of 1812 and Civil War soldiers.
