I have several books devoted to genealogy online research. I must say that this is about the best in my collection thus far. It is truly a step-by-step guide. I have discovered numerous new ways of searching for my ancestors in each chapter of this easy to read and understand book. Chapter Eight on Land Records is worth the price of the book alone. The "Putting It All Together' chapter includes the use of mindmapping as a tool to help you overcome brick walls in your research. It is kin to the case study boards that law enforcement uses to solve cases.

If you haven't discovered Nancy Hendrickson's book then by all means invest in a copy. It will not disappoint you. This book belongs on every genealogist's book shelf.

This book is great even for the more experienced genealogist and those who are very computer savvy. I consider myself an advanced computer user and an intermediate level genealogist. I learned many techniques that I was able to implement and extend one of my family lines a few additional generations. I would highly recommend this book especially those who need to do most of their research online.

Nancy has done a great job at putting together a current and useful reference for researching genealogy on the Internet. Since I'm teaching a class this semester at the local college on this subject, I have found her book useful in preparing for my class. If you want a good basic reference on using the Internet in your research, of the many I have seen and purchased to date, this is the best I have seen so far. Good job Nancy.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book and have an "umpteen" number of sticky flags on references I want to check into further. This book was spot on for me. I enjoy genealogy and this book is now one of my favorite references.

This book was helpful in guiding online searches for genealogy research. A good deal of the information I was already aware of, but overall it was worthwhile.

Wow! Lots of information here. Needed a book that showed how to get family history in a logical way and this does that. I needed a goal and a path in front of me.

Genealogy is not my favorite hobby, but got a bit interested and in reading this book, I rediscovered computer skills and cleaned up my desktop and got a bit better at doing searches with "operators." Read the book, it is well worth it.

Watched You tube videos she recommended and more on my own, and discovered more about own personal family history from a family member's family tree.

In essence, one gets more efficient and more aware of what is available online like databases and blogs, and how to go about discovering your roots with this book.

Can't imagine starting family history searches without an idea of what you are doing and having specific goals. One of mine was proof-documentation and cross-referencing. This book is helpful indeed.

I am always looking to see if I have missed something with a couple of my family ancestors. Easy reading, useful information.
