Product description

Here's everything you need to know to start tracing your ancestral roots, presented in an easy-to-follow question-and-answer format that's designed to inspire and encourage. Begin by organizing and evaluating readily available material, including family documents and photographs. Explore fundamental research techniques, from interviewing relatives to surfing the Internet. Find out about more advanced methods of obtaining information from census, citizenship, and other public records; cemeteries; early newspapers; immigration documents; and passenger manifests. Plenty of photographs, charts, and lists help you embark on your journey of discovery. "Distills a complex subject into bite-sized pieces for the beginning genealogist...Color photos, a large font, adequate margins, and a detailed index make this book approachable and appealing...an excellent introduction to genealogical research."--Library Journal
