5.0 out of 5 stars Extremely well written and informative.
I have read several books about performing genealogy research on line, but this book is by far the best! It gives you hits, tips, software reviews, and, best of all, LOTS of links to genealogy sites on the WWW. This books is definitely worth its modest price for anyone who is, or is considering, performing genealogical research.

Ralph covered how to run (any) software package, and how to connect to the internet. He also reviewed, in depth, Family Tree Maker, the only genealogy software he seems to be familiar with. If you don't know much about the internet or computers, this book will be helpful.

However, most of us are familiar with both (Hey, we're on Amazon.com, aren't we?), so more than half the book is wasted. There are about ten pages of weblinks which can be had simply by going to a decent search engine, like Yahoo!. Spend your money on another genealogy book.

1.0 out of 5 stars This book is somewhat of a rip-off, 3 Feb 1999
By A Customer
I guess if you know nothing or little about PCs and/or the internet this book might be for you. The author seems to fill up the book by writing about areas that really have nothing to do with Geneaology. There are finally a few pages that provide Geneaology links on the internet and most of these links are no longer valid. Those that are valid, one may find on your own using any of the usual search engines.
