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.

This is an american version which was not made clear on the advertising by Amazon. Do not purchase, await the UK VERSION.

As with most Dummies titles, it does what it says on the tin, and gives you exactly what you expect. Although I am by no means a novice at genealogy, I found numerous ideas and suggestions that have already helped me trace a relative who died in the 2nd World War. There are pages of useful websites - many of them free to search - and anyone contemplating researching their Family History should seriously consider this book, especially at the excellent price to be found on amazon.co.uk.

Had recently purchased a couple of books to help me with my amateur geneaology research & then spotted this one. It won hands down on positive help without having to trawl through chapters & chapters to even decide where to start.
Perfect for the first timer & also the more experienced geneaologists as well.

I have read other dummies guides and found them very helpful. This one disappointed significantly. I suspect that if I were in the USA i\d find it very helpful, but maybe the title should be Genealogy Online for USA Dummies. Fine for anyone whose researches take them across the Atlantic, but where the tree is rooted firmly in the uK much of this is not relevant in terms of helping a person to do their own research.

I'm sure this would be excellent if I was American.
Not much use if you are a British Family Researcher.

I truly enjoyed this book. My daughters been trying to buy it for me for quite some time. Of course that was the previous version...I didn't think I needed it AND then I hit a brick wall. I asked her to get it for me for Mother's Day, sure enough, it helped! Matthew and April, Thanks!!!
