George G. Morgan's book "How To Do Everything Genealogy" should be in the library of everyone doing genealogy research.

Whether you are just starting your research or have been at it for over a decade (like me)George walks the reader through how to find, analyze and organize the information your collect. He also explains why birth, marriage and death certificates are important BUT do not overlook the wealth of information found in land, probate and military records.

George also points out that all research cannot be done on the Internet (sigh...)and he lists alternative resources to consider if you cannot find certain documents such as a death certificate. He also includes a chapter on the newest genealogy craze - DNA Research.

I have to confess I bought both the Kindle and the paperback version. Why? I wanted to have the book with me on my next research trip and it is much easier to carry on my Kindle Fire plus the hyperlinks for the chapters, figures and case study work great. The paperback version is on my desk where I can flip it open quickly if I have a question from a friend or one of my own while I am researching.

Just like the Podcast he hosts with Drew Smith, [...], the writing style is conversational and makes you feel like a good friend is helping you with your research.

Genealogy has always been a fascinating subject for me. Since I was unable to research my family due to pressures of a job and raising my own family, I began dreaming of starting this adventure 6 months ago when I retired from work. In beginning my own research, I realized I was coming across some brick walls per se. So with the wisdom of Amazon and its fine book collections, I came across Gordon's 3rd addition of "How to do everything genealogy!"

I opened his book in Kindle and have not been able to put it down literally. It was as if Gordon and I have been friends on a journey together to bring about a discovery of our past. The only difference is Gordon had learned the tools I needed to become successful. Some of these tools I have all ready begun to use for example like ancestry.com , libraries, and cemeteries. But its the detail in how I can use all the resources available to me that are outlined in this facinating book. This book needs to be on the shelf of any person who is seriously looking to engage their past ancestors and learn about them. As we learn about our descendants, we actually learn of ourselves. Its a two fold mission I believe Gordon has shown me. Obviously first you learn all the techniques and intricate ways of using the internet or any resource available to you to discover one's past, but then the second part is that you as the person doing the detective work begins to have a new appreciation for your own history. It's so gratifying to have a book that teaches me to open up my past and bring it to life. I highly recommend this book to any reader interested in learning more about their ancestors...

A very comprehensive text with excellent references. Since I've been collecting data for a few years, I was looking for a more A-Z reference text and found this one to be too basic for my needs. I would recommend it for new researchers.

I can't begin to tell you how much I have already learned for my genealogy research from this kindle book. Researching my wife's and my ancestries has become a passion, bordering on addiction. So many hurdles have seemed to be insurmountable up until now [finding birth records, marriages, divorces, naturalizations, ship manifests with our ancestors aboard while they were immigrating to the part of the North American continent that we now call the United States of America, -- because at least my wife's family can be traced back that far -- and on and on]. "How to do Everything: Genealogy (3rd Edition)" has become a bible of sorts in our continued efforts to reach back into the past for the benefit of ourselves and our children, grandchildren, etc. that we will leave behind one day.

I bought this book after reading it in the library and felt there was additional information that I may need to refer to as I was doing my research. Amazon found a source that sold the book at a reasonable price.

This book is loaded with helpful and useful information. Phone numbers, websites, online searches, physical research, "how-to" tips, are included within the pages of this great book. Glad I bought it. Thank you Mr. Morgan

This book is exactly what I needed to help me research further into our Family Trees. It is most helpful and pointed out areas which I have not thought of looking.

I would definitely recommend this book to others.

Thank you

I've been doing genealogy research for over 30 years, and learn something new with every article I read. George Morgan has put together the essentials that can serve as reminders or new methods to attack long standing brick walls. It stays in arms reach at my desktop along with Morgan's Advanced Genealogy Techniques.
