This handy guide is a beginner's primer to genealogy. For those new to the hunt, plenty of basic research tips are supplied. After outlining the most fruitful starting points, the author provides information on recording data, surfing the Web in search of relevant information, separating facts from fiction, and accessing the most likely places to locate records. Though seasoned family historians will have progressed well beyond these basic suggestions, novices wondering where and how to undertake the task will appreciate having the fundamentals succinctly laid out for them. --Margaret Flanagan Copyright 2005 Booklist
