Book Description

May 15, 1996 0897749782 978-0897749787 annotated edition 10 and up 5 and up
"... this is a well-written and rich resource". -- School Library Journal review of A Student's Guide to British American Genealogy

This groundbreaking series is the first to explain the "how-to's" of genealogical research in simple, jargon-free language. The Oryx American Family Tree Series explores how to research family history for 12 different ethnic groups. Each volume begins with an overview of the group's historical and cultural background, then guides readers through each step in tracing their own genealogical heritage, with practical advice on how to
-- locate important family documents and other vital sources of information
-- conduct interviews with family members and record eyewitness accounts of key events
-- use the latest electronic research tools
-- research your background if you are adopted or come from a nontraditional family
-- preserve family history for future generations

Each volume is written in a friendly, narrative style and is extensively illustrated with full-color and black-and-white photographs. Hundreds of valuable resources unique to each ethnic group are also listed and annotated, including genealogical organizations, books, magazines, journals, videos, and special libraries and archives.

The Oryx American Family Tree Series provides an easy-to-follow road map for anyone interested in tracing a family history -- from junior high and high school students to adults who require a basic primer. Every library will want to make this practical, highly readable series available to its patrons.

Each volume is produced as a sturdy 6 x 9 casebound publication, 192 pages, and printed on acid-free paper.


Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 7 Up?Picking up where Lila Perl's The Great Ancestor Hunt (Clarion, 1989) leaves off, these books provide the actual details of researching ancestors from specific nationalities. Each one follows a similar format of introducing the country, ethnic group, and emigration to America. The organization of the books differs after these initial chapters, with each focusing on different ways to chronicle a family history. The authors are realistic about the research, cautioning readers about reluctant interviewees and the expense that might be incurred. The tone, however, remains enthusiastic in both. Both books also touch upon adoption and how one can search for birth parents. Extensive, annotated lists of resources appear at the end of each chapter, and include Internet sites, computer programs, and addresses and phone numbers of related government agencies in the U.S. and abroad. Full-color and black-and-white photos lend an attractive touch. These books should be the first stop for students interested in tracing their roots for a school or family project, or for personal knowledge about their heritage.?Carol Fazioli, Cardinal Hayes Library, Manhattan College, NY
