I bought this book a few days ago at the dollar store! I can't put it down! I have bookmarked every other page and will have to go back and highlight the info I want to preserve ... Or make copious notes! there are also many references suggested to search hard-to-find relatives along with excellent alternatives to doing the research.
I have used Ancestry.com and had fantastic results with family who has been here since the 1700's -compiling hundreds of results going back to their origins in Europe. however, I have had minimal results with other branches of my tree - those who arrived at Ellis island. I am looking forward to working on these families using some of the sites suggested in this book. I am only about 25 pages in and can't wait to go further!
