I have long been interested in taking the Accredited Genealogist Exam, but have been frustrated with the lack of specific material showing me how to do that. This fills that narrow niche. It has inspired me to prepare more fully for that exam.

I read this book to find better research techniques that I can use for American ancestry beyond the basic sources. It revealed repositories, sources, books, and magazines I had not considered before. Although it is geared toward people who want to become accredited genealogists, I found it helpful in expanding my own knowledge of what is out there and techniques to use such as a personal research guide. After all, if you are a novice or intermediate genealogist, wouldn't you want to know how the professionals do it? It may just save you time and money in your own research methods.

I began doing genealogy for my own family and my husbands family, soon I began thinking .....hmmm wonder if I could do this and actually get paid for it? So I ordered this book to see what the requirements were and let me tell you a genealogist earns their money! The standards set for someone to become accredited or certified are set high and you must be very well versed in all types of documents and their whereabouts, if you can speak or read a second language you are even further ahead. You must be really good in research ....the book takes you through a variety of tips and hints which may help you even if you never get accredited or certified, so for me that is just as valuable. I would recommend this book to anyone who is thinking of doing genealogy as a career or to someone who is doing their own genealogy and who would like to know how to do it professionally. Very good book.

If you are intent on becoming an accredited genealogist, you can't have better coaching than from the person who runs the testing process. Buy this book, study it, complete the exercises, and you will be well prepared for the accreditation process.

This reference guide is recommended for those who wish to take the accreditation examination offered by the Family History Library in Salt Lake City. It is also recommended for others who are doing professional research.

As I've be interested in genealogy for yrs and belong to many of the websites for research, I thought it would be a breeze to become accredited. But, I found out through this book there were many things I didn't know in taking the tests. It has helped me to know I need further research before taking the test and I am now studying the info the book provided.

Mentioning FamilySearch and compact disc in the same breath should tell you a lot. Genealogy, like all other information professions, has undergone a seachange since 1998 (the copyright date for this revised addition). Likewise, the nitty-gritty for certification with that "new" International Commission has changed. (You'll have to google for an URL since the one given in the book takes you to the Utah Genealogical Association.) The book is not without merit; thus, the stars. The later chapters on analysis of material do have some merit, but Ancestry.com should not be proud of the fact that it is still publishing and charging for this product.

Excellent book, explains the different accreditations and how to go about getting them. If you are doing a lot of family research, you owe it to the future to document it. If you want to publish it, accreditation is nice (necessary if you want to sell the info). Easy to read, explains a lot.
