The best possible resource for anyone like me who is researching the Eastman family. I have spent many hours tracing the remarkable descendants of Roger Eastman and Sarah Smith. Like any author dealing with so many facts Rix has some errors, but considering the scope of the work they are few.
For those born after 1900 check out That Man Eastman by Charles John Eastman.
