Description

Aimed at the beginning genealogist, this guide to tracing ancestry and writing a family history offers step-by-step instructions for bringing the past to life. A discussion of various categories of records -- including library holdings, church and cemetery records, local and state records, and naturalisation and census records -- provides a starting point. Instructions for organising research material, interviewing family members, conducting research in libraries, and translating these findings into an entertaining family history are detailed. Included in this revised edition are pointers toward the latest Internet resources.
