Book Description

Learn an Expert's Secrets to Finding Ancestors Online

Revised and Updated, July 2014

Join Nancy Hendrickson, the One-Hour Genealogist as she tackles a real-life genealogy research problem. 

You, the detective

Internet genealogy expert, Nancy Hendrickson, uses a personal case study to illustrate how to approach online genealogy research like a detective. While many people search the Internet in a hit-and-miss fashion, Hendrickson uses the same skills as a "library researcher" to identify a goal and then use Internet resources to solve a problem.

Use her five-step method to untangle your family tree mysteries. This short guide lets you look over the shoulder of a renowned Internet genealogy expert as she weaves together clues and leads to uncover more about her own family. 

End your frustration

Almost everyone who goes online searching the family tree makes the same mistake: Jumping from one website to another without a goal and without a strategy. Hendrickson's short guide will show you how to approach a research problem in a logical fashion, using clues to guide you through the Internet.

1.0 out of 5 stars Only covers US genealogy 9 Mar. 2012
By Eric K
Format:Kindle Edition
I was very disappointed by this book. It only discusses US genealogy, so it is of little interest for anyone living outside USA.

1.0 out of 5 stars Relevant mostly for U.S. 27 Aug. 2012
By Robert
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Apart from a few general principles - e.g. follow all the leads - I think this has little to offer anyone except to those with ancestors in the USA in the 19th-century. Very disappointing.

4.0 out of 5 stars good book, would recommend. 24 Feb. 2015
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a very good book with some unusual ideas for breaking down brick walls. It is written for an American audience but her ideas are easily convertible for a British audience.

1.0 out of 5 stars DON'T BUY THIS 3 July 2011
By A Mississippian - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
This is not a case study! It is a "follow me while I do an internet search." Not one footnote - not a quality piece of writing by any standards. Genealogical Proof Standards will not be found in this short article.

2.0 out of 5 stars Article, not book! 20 May 2011
By reyno - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is listed as a book which I would assume has several pages (as in more then 10.) NO this is an article, which is short, and a brief overview. I was disappointed to pay for a short article, when I expected a book.

Suggested a few steps I had not come across before but thought "book" would be more pages with more help with ancestors in Europe, etc....

5.0 out of 5 stars INTERESTING AND INFORMATIVE 31 Dec. 2012
By Mary J. Gourley - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
THIS CASE STUDY WAS PRESENTED VERY WELL. OFFERS MANY TIPS OF HOW TO MAKE YOUR
OWN APPROACH TO YOUR PERSONAL RESEARCHING. I WISH THERE WERE MORE STUDIES
WRITTEN AS THIS ONE WAS.
4.0 out of 5 stars A research study guide I can follow! 25 July 2014
By Glen T Roberts - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Exactly what I was looking for! A brief concise illustration of doing a case study using all online sources, and most all free. The reasoning, the focus and depth of the research is great without becoming tedious.
I don't understand folks complaining about it bit being a book! With it being presented by someone considered a one hour genealogist? Really, and why would you want anything so bulky as a book?
