    Review quote
    Peter Christian's now-classic internet guide...has been expanded and updated to give up-to-the-minute (or the closest to it) information...this revised handbook is certainly welcome. An invaluable guide whether you're new to tree-tracing online or a seasoned web surfer. Family Tree Magazine This book is one of the 'must-haves,' for your genealogy bookshelf. Books about online genealogy are often little more than lists of resources, but Peter Christian provides the kind of informed comment that only an experienced genealogist can. -- Audrey Collins The National Archives
