The Complete Idiot's Guide to Online Genealogy
The second edition of a popular series title brings Internet family tree shaking up-to-date.
-- The American Family Immigration History Center (ellisislandrecords.org), which went online in April 2001, registered 1.9 million visitors in its first month of operation. It was virtually impossible to log onto the site until June.
-- Yahoo lists, under keyword "genealogy, " 347 categories, 1645 Web sites, and 3.5 million Web pages (433 of those Web pages deal specifically with "online genealogy").
-- New databases, Web pages, and message boards to assist ancestry researchers appear online virtually every week.
All chapters will have URL updates -- many Web sites have changed or disappeared since the first edition was published. The book will fully cover the major changes in software programs available, plus computerized genealogy forms. This edition will also include new information on dealing with the National Archives and obtaining information from maps and gazetteers, a completely revised chapter on online databases, a new chapter on digital resources, and major revisions of chapters dealing with library sources -- particularly the chapter on the Family History Library in Salt Lake City, UT.
