Format: Paperback
Dr. Schweitzer is best known for his series of booklets on research for individual states, but he completed others that touch on certain aspects of genealogical research, including this particular title on researching Civil War related materials. While this handbook is a concise and brief primer or starting point for most researchers as well as a handy reference to have, it is now rather out of date as it does not include internet resources and new technologies used by researchers. Schweitzer's basic guidance and direction is still as solid as ever and his prose is plain and direct as he provides a listing of those resources available. There are undoubtedly other books that go into greater detail and that would provide better overall utility to the researcher than this. Since this title was written years ago some telephone numbers and addresses have changed and some organizations, groups or societies may be dormant or closed. While Schweitzer does not make reference to internet sources or email addresses it's just as well as they tend to get out-of-date quite quickly. I've rarely used this title as others quite simply do a better job and provide far more resources to utilize. If you are going to spring for this title, get it used; it isn't worth the money paying for it new until it is updated.

I have most of this series and have found it to be very helpful. He goes into some of the history of the title topic. You have some basic resources and well as where to find them. I have found resources and where to find them. This book is most helpful for the beginners as well as those that are more experienced. This book is a good resource for you genealogical library. The only draw back is that there it does not have a list of internet resources, however, those are easy to look up. Which for me is not a big deal. Another feature is that some of the facilites he refers to he explains where to go and how to effectively use them.
