From Booklist

Crume provides an invaluable resource for amateur genealogists. Acknowledging^B that the bulk of preliminary research now can be accomplished online, he addresses the many technological issues that may overwhelm and deter novice Web surfers and CD-ROM users. After offering useful tips on accessing and evaluating often intimidating genealogical databases, he furnishes strategies for wording queries and narrowing searches in order to acquire the desired family information quickly and directly from an array of online records and archives. 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.
