I have found this book to be tremendously helpful. The author takes you step by step along the road to successful searches with her explanations of the research process and what can go wrong. Have you really hit a brick wall or is it just a big bump in the road that you can deal with -- if you understand what needs to be done? She gives you lists where they are needed and her explanations and descriptions are dead on. My poor copy is already filled with "remember this" and "note that" type of highlighting, as well as margin notes. This may sound odd but, when I finished it, I found myself thinking differently. I approached problems with a new perspective and from different angles. I even found it affecting my non-genealogy life. Another proof that this is an excellent book about how to reason your way through apparent brick walls and dead ends.
The author is British and for the most part she uses British records and websites for her examples and suggestions. That said, her basic methodology applies no matter what country you are from.Read more ›
