Encyclopedias provide information on branches of knowledge and treat specific topics comprehensively, usually in articles arranged alphabetically. They often contain valuable genealogical information. They can include articles about towns and places, prominent people, minorities, and religions. They can also give information about such diverse topics as record keeping practices, laws, customs, commerce, costumes, occupations, and archaic terminology.
