Format and Organization:
“Lynneage ...” is hard-bound with 500+ pages on 8.5 x 11 paper. The cover is blue with gold lettering. The book is divided into 11 chapters – 1 for each of the 10 regions of Scotland and 1 for Ulster, Ireland. Most of those regions are further divided into counties and parishes. Records appear partly in narrative accounts (where there is a great deal to say about a particular person or family) and partly in chronologies (where records of persons or families range in length from a couple of lines to a paragraph or so). Included are families about whom there is significant history (see CDs). There also are 39 genealogies varying in length from 3 to 15 generations and averaging 5 generations each.
