Roberts, Gary Boyd. (2009, reprinted 2012).  Ancestors of American Presidents 2009 Edition compiled by Gary Boyd Roberts with charts prepared in part by Christopher Challender Child from originals by Julie Helen Otto.  Boston:  New England Historic Genealogical Society

Evidently Roberts wrote this when he still wanted to be taken seriously as a genealogist. Carl Boyer, 3rd is not a name that inspires confidence among genealogists. The 2009/2012 edition is greatly expanded over the 1995 edition, so there’s no reason to seek out the earlier version.  The presence of illegitimate generations here concerns me that the intended audience for these works is not receiving the most careful scholarship.  Nonetheless, the price of $39.95 for the 2009/2012 edition (ordered directly from the publisher) is modest considering the amount of information on offer and if used carefully is actually quite enjoyable.
