Volume one, as quoted in the book, 'We give in the "Origin and Stem of the Irish Nation", and, so far as we could collect them, the genealogies of the families which branched from that ancient stem'.
Volume two, as quoted in the book, 'We give the "Families in Ireland from the twelfth to the end of the sixteenth century", with the counties in which they, respectively, we located'.
