The pre-eminent handbook for those family historians with British or Irish ancestors, The Genealogist's Internet is a comprehensive introduction and guide to researching family history online. It details the major web-based sources of primary data available to family historians, highlights the most helpful directories and gateways, and tell you how to contact others with the same surname, or to access the numerous forums, discussion groups, mailing lists, and newsgroups focusing on genealogy.

This greatly expanded second edition includes the new large-scale projects now appearing on the Net, such as the "Old Bailey Proceedings" and "The Digital Library of Historical Directories." It offers helpful hints and instructions for publishing your family tree online, as well as a glossary of genealogical and Internet terms. And this edition will never go out of date - a dedicated website provides updates on all the information contained in the book.
