I don't read French, but when I was in Salt Lake City, I looked at his
book in the FHL and found I could figure most of it out. After all,
genealogical charts don't look that much different in French. If they
weren't so darned expensive, I'd probably buy them even if they are in
French. Sure it would be nice if they were in English, but they
probably don't have high enough demand to pay a translator and Christian
probably doesn't feel enough at home in English to write a book in
English, so it's French or nothing. I'm happy that did not write
"nothing."
