About the Author

Rhonda R. McClure can trace her introduction to history, in general, and family history, specifically, back to her childhood. Her grandmother's involvement in the DAR (Daughters of the American Revolution) afforded her the benefit of viewing history as more than just a list of dry names, dates, and places. She did not begin researching her family history until 1983. In 1987, through the support and encouragement of her grandfather, she enrolled in independent study courses about genealogy from Brigham Young University. That was the beginning of the "end of life without genealogy," and she has been hooked ever since.

Rhonda has been involved in online genealogy since 1987. She served as data manager of the Genealogy RoundTable on Genie from 1990 to 1997. She was the Web site Sysop on the Ultimate Family Tree Web site (uftree) for four years. She was the forum manager of the Genealogy Forum on MSN (Microsoft Network) for 18 months, until mid-1998. Rhonda now offers guidance to genealogists in weekly columns published on Genealogy at genealogy, where she loves to help those new to genealogy and enjoys watching her Web site visitors grow in their research abilities. She is also responsible for researching and compiling celebrity family trees that appear on Genealogy.

In 1990, Rhonda published her first genealogy article in Heritage Quest Magazine. For the last three years, she has been a contributing editor to Heritage Quest Magazine, with her award-winning "The Resource Cabinet" column, where she offers answers to readers' questions. Her "Celebrity Roots" column appears in Biography Magazine, and she is a contributing editor to the National Genealogical Society's Newsmagazine. She has authored three other books including Family Tree Maker Fast & Easy, The Genealogist's Computer Companion, and the original edition of The Complete Idiot's Guide to Online Genealogy. Rhonda has a five-day-a-week, online e-mail-distributed newsletter, Family Tree Finders, available through SodaMail, at sodamail/. She is a co-author of RootsWeb's Guide to Tracing Family Trees, which you can access at rwguide.rootsweb/.

Format: Paperback
I find that trying to get into genealogy is fairly easy & fun, but you can spend an enormous amount of time just getting started unless you have some guidelines. Where do you look for certain records; how do you find old Uncle Joe's third wife; etc? Even with helpful books such as the Idiots Guide, you will still find yourself spending lots of time searching through records, but at least you're being more productive because there are lots of hints & shortcuts. It's a great book to use along with an ancestry site.

This is a useful reference, but because of the nature of the Internet, the links outdate quickly. It desperately needs to be an online text that can be updated frequently and more readily accessed, as these are very long urls to type in in some cases (only to find the site has been moved). But wait, we have that online resource...it's called Cyndi's list. I haven't found anything in this text yet that was not more easily accessed on Cyndi's list.
