Format: Paperback
When I ordered this book, I expected this book to include information and advice specifically for North Americans. Despite the fact that it is very informative and packed with helpful notes on records to search including one chapter on "Early (pre 1700) England research", I was in for a disappointment since it was mostly information for the general researcher. I guess I expected more on sources a North American could use for England research. Unfortunately, that was not the case over all. Due to this limitation, I believe a more suitable title would have dropped the reference to North Americans and just stuck with a general title.
Despite this limitation, I would still recommend this book for general research and not specific to North American residents.

Format: Paperback
The best part of this short readable book is that Ms. Irvine takes the perspective of the North American. The records are remote for us, so how can efficient research be done? By providing a broad view, the answer is provided as well as the setting of reasonable expectations. Since 1993 much more is available on-line. The basics and good advice on strategies are still sound.
