Genealogy for Beginners
This book tells the beginner genealogist exactly how to collect information from living relatives, how to make full use of all existing clues and traditions, how and where to find written records and what information they can be expected to provide as well as the likely problems that may be encountered and possible ways to solve them. Now completely revised and re-written by Karin Proudfoot, it is once more the most up-to-date book on the subject and the best buy for the beginner of today.
