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concise and brief primer or starting point for most researchers as well as a handy reference to have, it is now rather out of date as it does not include internet resources and new technologies used by researchers.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 While Schweitzer does not make reference to internet sources or email addresses it's just as well as they tend to get out-of-date quite quickly.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.
