Reviews
"The authors are realistic about the research, cautioning readers about reluctant interviewees and the expense that might be incurred....Extensive, annotated lists of resources appear at the end of each chapter, and include Internet sites, computer programs, and addresses and phone numbers of related government agencies in the U.S. and abroad. Full-color and black-and-white photos lend an attractive touch. These books should be the first stop for students interested in tracing their roots for a school or family project, or for personal knowledge about their heritage."-School Library Journal
..."this guide is concisely written and packed with information....Particularly enjoyable to this reviewer was the special attention paid to immigrant women and nontraditional families, subjects not often covered in beginners books."-Italian Genealogical Group
"A Student's Guide to Italian American Genealogy teaches students to collect data, obtain and evaluate documents and use the latest electronic tools for researching, conducting and recording eyewitness accounts of historical events in family life."-The National Italian American News Bureau
"Each volume provides an easy to understand overview of the history of immigration and culture in the U.S. for the particular ethnic group....Where these books shine, for the student and adult genealogist, is in the resource listings....For students, these books provide a great way of getting started in genealogy and learning about the life and heritage of their ancestors. For adult researchers these books provide excellent resources to move beyond the genealogical books into learning about the history, culture and experience of their ancestors."-FGS Forum
