Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 7 Up. This title is primarily an annotated bibliography of materials, organizations, libraries, and archives useful in researching German-American genealogy. In fact, over half of the book is devoted to such listings. While the citations are helpful and current?the author includes sections on genealogical computing and Internet resources?they will disappoint readers who open A Student's Guide expecting to find everything they need within its covers. Robl's approach is both overwhelming and complex; hence, only dedicated genealogists will persevere. Beginners will prefer to start with a more general guide, such as Ira Wolfman's Do People Grow on Family Trees? (Workman, 1991), enhanced by Irene Franck's The German-American Heritage (Facts on File, 1988). Wolfman's instructions on pedigree charts and other genealogical topics are much clearer than Robl's, and he includes useful forms. Franck goes into more detail on German history and emigration. Once teens have exhausted these resources and are still eager to continue their search, Robl's book will come in handy?but probably not before.?Ann W. Moore, Schenectady County Public Library, NY

Review

"This is a well organized and handsomely produced volume. As a basic research tool, it should be well received by anyone who is beginning German-American research. Recommended for all libraries." -- Colorado Libraries

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book was very easy to read gave insight to the migration patterns of the German immigrants to the US. There are many references for further follow up. I read this from cover to cover and kept going back from one part f the book to another to find info on my family. I am sure it will serve as a great reference book as I continue my genealogy work! My copy was taken from a school library so do not be afraid to buy a used copy. It was in great shape.
