This book is a very good guide particularly for new genealogists but is also a great refresher for more experienced ones. It is well organized and comprehensive. It is written in a straightforward manner and well indexed so that it is easy to use and find the various topics that the author is writing about.

I recommend this book for your library, if you are doing any extent of genealogy research. Lots of great ideas, and reminders for what veterans may have forgotten.

This is a good book. For 2011, it has a new cover and a new layout. The new cover says "2nd Edition." A new edition normally means new contents. Buyers should be aware that in this case, the contents appear not to have changed substantially from the earlier version in 2008. The use of "2nd Edition" is somewhat misleading, and you don't want to buy this one if you have the earlier one.

I am so excited about the help this book has given me. I was looking for a general how to book on genealogy but this book is extensive. My Grandfather was a Veteran and this book actually gives all the information and contacts for recovering his Military records. It's thorough and well written and will help anyone with modern day genealogy research.

Has made my genealogy research a little easier, lots of good suggestions for sites that have helped me solve a family mystery. Also found bible pages and manuscripts that I might have missed without this book.

This book has just about there is to know about internet genealogy. It begins with a lot of the other things that you need to know to do genealogy such as interviewing relatives and looking for information that you already have at home.The only way it could be improved is by giving sample questions to ask on an interview.
