Resources currently available^B online include vital records;^B census^B records; probate and court records;^B cemeteries and tombstone inscriptions; military records; land and property records; church records; and newspapers, journals, books, wills and manuscripts. This informative guidebook supplies a blueprint for initiating a wide variety of family research projects. Margaret Flanagan

Format: Paperback
I had hoped that this book would help me locate treasures on the internet. Unfortunately it is, for the most part, a printed index to what is available on ancestry.com. If you don't subscribe to ancestry, don't waste time or money on this book.

The book was okay, but nothing really special. Several of the links didn't work, probably because it was copyrighted a while ago.
