This book is 400+ pages. There is no listed author in the actual book although
libraries have been putting REK Rigbeye
as the author. The book is not
dated but the forward is dated 1st
March 1911 at Carlisle, Cumberland,
England. There are 39 fold out descendant charts included at the back (although
the book calls them pedigrees they are actually descendant charts).
Please note that putting the complete "Storeys of Old" book on the Internet is a
long term project. As time permits more sections will be added. As some people have
found out some links go to chapters that haven't been proccessed yet. Please be
patient, we'll get there eventually.
One big problem that I have is the poor quality of the photographic images from my
copy of the Storeys of Old book. If anyone has access to any better copies of the
originals, I would be grateful.
While all effort has been done to faithfully reproduce the book some errors may
have crept in. If you notice any errors please contact
Brad Storey with any corrections.

(You can order this book on microfilm from any LDS FHC branch library. This is the
correct film number, as I have ordered it and used it to correct pages in the copy
of the Storeys of Book from Wanda Story. Unfortunatly the photographs in the
microfilm are unsuitable to use in the Website.)
