Extremely readable, full of relevant and interesting information ... Enjoyable, inexpensive, pocket-sized and bang up to date, Catlett's book has something for most levels of family history researcher. (Who Do You Think You Are? magazine)

A good starting place, setting out as it does, clearly and simply, what you need to begin and how you can access the main sources of information to start building your family tree. Recommended. (Family Tree magazine)

This is just 'THE book to have and to learn from as a complete novice like myself. Yes there are loads of others out there but they can get too complicated...this one shows easy 'how to' steps and packed full of internet resources.
Highly recommended purchase for the family history novice

Format: Paperback
A handbook on how to research your family tree on line with tips on useful sites and contacts
the handbook also explains where to access some of the paper archives and which archives are best for each aspect of your research
I read this book in one sitting but it will be beneficial to dip in and out while conducting research to look for new avenues to research when hitting a wall or just for guidance on recording the information gained and making it available to others.
well worth the purchase price and a pocket size book that isn't to heavy to carry in your bag on the hunt.

Whilst explaining how to go about researching your family tree in a simple, clear and readable way, this little book never patronises the more experienced researcher. The section on how to record your findings is excellent and everything is up-to-date & relevant. This is the one to read to get you started if you're a novice - and also the one to remind those who've already started how and why to be methodical. An excellent book!

I bought the first edition of this book in 1988 just as I was starting out on my family history research. It is still to this day the best book I have ever read for a new family history researcher. I followed the author's guidance on record-keeping (paper records at the time) and I have maintained the same system although I have now updated those records onto my computer. Highly recommended for those just embarking on this fascinating hobby.

You get a simple to read guide here which for the money is fine. I read it in one sitting as large areas could be happily skipped. Much of it maybe needs updating as the focus on paper records and drawing out the family tree on wallpaper seems a little dated in our digital age. Not a costly purchase so value for money as a way of reassuring a newcomer how they might develop this fascinating pursuit.

Very basic and didn't really tell me anything I didn't already know as a beginner to tracing my family tree.
