Summary by Archive CD Books USA
The CD includes high-quality images of every page as originally published (not just a transcript) and is fully searchable using Adobe Acrobat Reader (version 5 or later recommended) on any Windows, Macintosh, or Unix computer. The data on this CD is completely self-contained, and requires no installation.
"The fact that information on this disk is fully searchable by every word of all ten books in one search makes for a much better collection that is easy to use. This search feature alone makes the CD much more valuable than others that I have used. I wish that all PDF-based CD disks had similar search capabilities. If you have New England ancestors, you will want to add the Compendium of New England Gazetteers to your collection. I suspect you will refer to it often as you search for more and more information about your ancestors and the towns in which they lived."
