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 offers helpful hints and instructions for publishing your family tree online, as well as a glossary of genealogical and Internet terms.
