lessons in genealogy

My mother took this picture of the books she was looking through to try to find out the genealogy of a tree my grandfather Peter Costich cultivated called European Hornbeam (Carpinus betulus). All of these publications come from the library of Hicks Nursery, the nursery on Long Island where my grandfather and great-grandfather worked and where my mother lived for the earlier part of her childhood.
