Long In The Tooth in 2010
on May 29, 2010
I purchased this used book from a bookseller at Amazon for a very low price although the shipping cost was a bit of a hit. The book was delivered quickly and in mint, "Like New" condition. No problems there.
The problem however (which is entirely my fault) is that the book was published ten years ago (in 2000). When you are talking about "online genealogy", it means much of the book material is now really obsolete in 2010. Even though the book is "long in the tooth" there still are a FEW hints for internet surfers who are brand new to online genealogy. Generally however, the book is extremely dated and not of much use to anyone with a little experience researching genealogy on the internet. One example: "Google Search" is hardly noted (it's included in a list of a half dozen other search engines and that's it).
Probably a good read 10 years ago but it's now "way over the hill". I should have checked more carefully before purchasing.
