My favorite genealogy how-to
3 April 2017 - Published on Amazon.com

My favorite genealogy how-to! I've been doing genealogy for 1/3 of my life and I've read earlier editions of this book, but on re-reading this edition I still found many new things to learn. I shared what I learned with a public forum, and many other experienced genealogists agreed that they didn't know tips I learned from this book. It's very easy to read, very enjoyable.

Only half way through this rather thick book, but it has already greatly increased my genealogical knowledge and prowess. Well-written by a well-known expert. Can't go wrong buying this book if you are learning genealogy.
A good place to start.

A good place to start. For a true genealogy newbie (me 3 months ago) this is a big help. If you have other research experience (in depth college papers or analyst work - etc) this will be a quick review and some hints for a new genre of research. A good resource to have on your shelf
