"Unlike a textbook or how-to book, which genealogists should consult prior to venturing upon a research trip, A Field Guide for Genealogists, by Judy Jacobson, is the perfect book to take with you once you have embarked. Consider the following scenarios: (1) You're doing research in a courthouse when you come across a term in a will that you don't understand; (2) You run across an old photograph of people who are supposed to be your ancestors, but you just can't place the subjects of the photo; (3) You find your great-great-great-grandmother's death certificate only to learn that she died from a disease you'd never heard of. The latest title from the prolific Mrs. Jacobson is designed to remove not only the foregoing stumbling blocks but also to answer thousands of other practical questions which quite naturally arise during the course of research" -- publisher website (August 2007).
