Reviews

This detailed book covers the basics of genealogy, including finding and evaluating records, the importance of documenting your sources, and a nice overview of using DNA testing for your genealogy research. Definitely worth reading if you're just getting started with genealogy or want to sharpen your skills.--Joe Beine, creator of the Online Death Indexes website deathindexes.com
Pennavaria's manual is a tutorial for the neophyte genealogist that introduces the mechanics of sketching a family tree. . . . For youth or adults, this guide simplifies the massive effort of analyzing family and clan roots. Recommended for public and high school libraries.--Booklist
