5.0 out of 5 stars Inspiration for all family historians January 13, 2013
An excellent resource for every genealogist who wonders how to make their research come alive. This is family history for the digital age. The author moves beyond dusty volumes of names and places to multimedia ideas using photos, movies, on-line publishing, blogging, and other tools. Even if you're starting with little or no computer savvy, she walks through the various products and websites, linking to additional online resources. Most importantly, the illustrations and personal stories provide creative inspiration to start recording and sharing your family's stories, whether you're new to genealogy or a long-time fan. Highly recommended.
