A google search returns nothing relevant for this title. A search WorldCat.org likewise gives nothing.

Was it actually published? If so, when and by whom? If, by chance, you have an ISBN number, that could be used for a more comprehensive search.

It may be a report prepared by Jay Priest, and not actually published. If so, finding a copy will be difficult.

Alice, I suspect George is correct about this being an unpublished work.  I got the same result he did, and also did not find that author or title listed in the U.S. Library of Congress card catalog.  Probably the only way you would be able to obtain a copy would be to contact the author directly (or a descendant, if he is deceased).  But I have stumbled onto a few unpublished genealogists like that who have donated copies of their work to area libraries or historical societies.  If you know the geographical area of the author or of Diadema Warner, you might try contacting libraries or genealogy groups in the area and ask if they know of the document and have it available to look at, or if someone would be willing to do lookups for you.  Good luck!

Afterthought:  It also occurs to me that all the unpublished genealogies I mentioned above address "Descendants of ..." somebody, usually a family patriarch or first immigrant to U.S., and not the ancestors of a recent or living person.  So the title makes me wonder if the document you're looking for is something that someone paid a researcher to develop for personal use??
