Carl Boyer's books are a good place to start. But Mr. Boyer is not terminally
thorough, so he can only be rated as possibly a good genealogist. He tends to
rely on sources which tend to be outdated, such as Vernon Norr's work.

As an example, the first part of his Devereux pedigree, which is based on Norr,
is totally fabulous.

When he states that he has not found a connection for the Camvilles, it only
shows that he really din't look too hard.

I find his books on his own Colonial ancestry to be better.
