Secrets of Tracing Your Ancestors
An introduction to genealogy, the craft of tracing your ancestors. Daniel Quillen teaches the basics of getting started and guides readers through the tricks and techniques of professional genealogists. There are lots of real-life examples and references to Web sites such as Cyndi's list, Ancestry.com, Genealogy.com and more, as well as the archives of the Mormon Church (one of the biggest genealogical archives anywhere), and government records where information can be gleaned. Often-overlooked resources - such as military records - are identified and instructions for procuring and using them are included.
