This book also provides page-sized copies of popular charts such as Family Group Records and Pedigree charts that can be easily photocopied and used. (My edition included a 16" x 18" tear-out family tree.)
Unlike many genealogy books, there is some excellent coverage on how to record family histories and write family biographies. Hartley explains how to publish your work and advises that "Most families who publish a book of genealogy print less than 50 copies."
He also describes the types of materials that you will need (sheet protectors, ink, etc.) to ensure that your records are properly preserved. There is also a section on how to organize activities for family reunions--one of those great venues for gathering genealogical details.
The well-organized and easy-to-read format makes it an excellent book choice for younger genealogists too.
Professor Hartley has provided an easy to read yet detailed solution for beginning and conducting a family search.
