From the Author
A common sense guide to researching your genealogy online.
You're probably asking yourself how this book differs from the many other available genealogy books. Some books tell you only the traditional methods of genealogical research--others that do talk about online methods tend to group them by type of resource rather than explaining how you can integrate the many Internet resources to achieve your genealogical goals. In Genealogy Online for Dummies we provide details on how to prepare for going online, research names on the Internet, find locations where your ancestors lived, locate government, ethnic and hard to find records, publish your genealogical findings on the World Wide Web, and a provide a glossary of Internet and genealogical terms--all with a focus on integrating the many available resources. We also include several tools on the accompanying CD-ROM to assist you in your research including the full Basic Edition of the bestselling Family Tree Maker genealogical software, useful Internet utilities and browsers, and genealogical utilities to help you place your genealogy on the Internet.
