The Everything Guide to Online Genealogy, 2nd Edition

By February 14, 2011

Follow me on:

I was thrilled to discover this week that my newest book, the Everything Guide to Online Genealogy, 2nd Edition, by Adams Media, is now available for sale on Amazon.com. It's an updated version of the original book that I wrote in 2008, with many new sites and databases, plus the most current information I was able to include on the seemingly ever-changing FamilySearch.org. The site is geared primarily to beginner and intermediate genealogists, with a foundation in both genealogical research and methodology, as well as online research - although I have heard from a few long-time professionals that my book taught them something new. I could never begin to cover the hundreds of thousands of genealogy resources available online, however, and a print publication (especially one limited in length such as this one) obviously can't keep up with the new resources coming online every day. So a big focus for me was to give people the knowledge and tools necessary for searching and using the Internet to find their own genealogy resources, rather than just including lists of links. I hope it helps at least one of you discover something new about your own family history.
