1. Title:   At the onset of my family genealogy research, Nancy Hickman daughter of my cousin Janis Ann Dier Hickman created a chart from possibly a family bible she may own showing the family lineages of my grandparents Vesta May Stofer Books, and Otho Leslie Books. On this chart were birth and death dates, and some marriage dates. I have found some of the information to be incorrect, however very helpful in leading to most of the ancestors I have been able to trace.
2. Title:   The great-great granddaughter of Jonas Wyer Books and Jane Ann Myers Books, shared her family research with me,
3. Title:   I went first to the Mormon Church Library and found family history through State, County and City Census films available to the public, and located my Grandfather Otho L. Books, in Huntingdon Co. PA. Also I made use of the church facilities to locate other family members. I received solid advice on how to pursue my searches, for the Books and Byrne (O'Byrne) families. From this point I have gone to the internet research from home, locating many descendants of my relatives and have benefited from this help in putting my family together into a grand report.
4. Title:   Margie Brubaker the great-great grandaughter of Jonas Weyer Books and Jane Ann Myers through Christine(a) Books has shared her research into this family with me.
