This book was recommended by a NY Times writer as the best for beginners. A lot of the book suggests talking to your relatives. If you are starting your genealogy project late in life, this is not helpful, as all people who could help are dead and gone. Also, the book provides very little help with using the internet.

Most of this book was really well done and helpful and I enjoyed it very much. I wouldn't give it five stars, though, because of the time given to finding census records the old-fashioned way. With all the available ones (1790-1940) on line in a number of places, already indexed, I didn't think anyone tried to find them on microfilm using soundex indexes any more! That needs to be updated. A beginner reading this wouldn't realize that nobody does it that way anymore!

I recommend this book to anyone who is interested in beginning their genealogy search. It gives so much information that one would otherwise not be aware.

The authors kept it interesting and gave a great overview. Plan to look into more books by these authors. Gives great tips for websites and places to look that are outside of the normals.
