This is one of the best genealogical resources I have found. I have been able to trace that branch of my family along with their titles and in some cases their history.
A wonderful source book covering a vast number of years and delving into the history of the Nobility of England. It gives you all the important descendants of families continuing onward to hold titles, but does not touch the full family in many instances. You have the current, the next title holder and a sibling mentioned due to the fact that the sibling's progeny will succeed the title next. When he arrives at the terminal end of a title, and the title is held in abeyance between surviving female inheritors, you do get a fuller view of the family. Some generations are skipped entirely as they do not succeed the title
I found it very valuable in identifying where some titles came from, especially when my genealogical research did not identify a title with a family previously, as a nephew might inherit, and no other source identified positively that his mother was connected to the family.
