Tracing Your Ancestors: An Illustrated Guide to Compiling Your Family Tree
Most introductions to genealogical research leave the reader to work his or her own way through the many complicated archives and procedures involved. Tracing Your Ancestors sets out to simplify the entire process, starting with basic first steps. Chapters on "Where & How to Start" and on "Organizing Your Search" lay out simple ground rules; subsequent chapters discuss core archives and how to access them, and show how to draw up a simple family tree. Uniquely, much emphasis is placed on using home computers and the net to find, and correctly catalog, relevant information.
