Review: Secrets of Tracing Your AncestorsUser Review - Jeanette - Goodreads
This is rather average as far as genealogy how-to books go. The best parts are the checklists and additional resources at the end of each chapter. Probably a decent guide for beginners but I think there are better ones out there. Read full review
