5.0 out of 5 stars Very Good Information 14 Jun 2014

I have been documenting not only my family history, but have also been helping others with theirs as well for quite some time now. This book does an excellent job at giving tips, tricks, and methods to those who are both new and old to the idea of archiving. The author does a great job at presenting extremely practical information on how to tackle many of the problems that any genealogist or archivist may come across today. It's also nice to find that the ideas are presented in a very easy, straight forward approach that, in my opinion, can be understood by anyone who comes across it's pages. Very cost effective ideas are given, and most people these days already have what's needed in order to accomplish the task of archiving successfully. There are a few pieces of equipment that may not be found in your every day life, however, if this is the case then don't worry as the author provides very wallet friendly ideas to solve this issue. Overall I know this book helped me add some new methods to my archiving approach, and I think anyone else who takes a look will find the same for themselves!

Highly recommended!
