5.0 out of 5 stars A Genealogists Must Have On The Book Shelf!!!
There are many books on the subject of genealogy reference, so much so, it is a nightmare and a daunting experience as to which reference books to plumb for. Peter Christian, has produced such a book, that is written in plain English, for the beginner and more advanced genealogist. The book is chronological in format with the most uptodate references of internet resources...

2.0 out of 5 stars Good on papertrails - but not good on YDNA web research, 19 April 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Genealogist's Internet (Paperback)
I agree with other reviewers that this book would be a useful guide to conventional, papertrail research etc..

However I was dismayed that there are merely a couple of pages dedicated to YDNA research in a book totalling 400 pages. The author is supposedly extolling the merits of internet usage, yet he does not mention the largest YDNA database ([]) where user-friendly on-line orders etc...can be placed for testing etc..
The internet has created nothing short of a REVOLUTION in YDNA research..& everybody can benefit.
The author fails to deliver this message.

YDNA research in genealogy is a "must" ! Especially for the Smith's, Brown's & Jones who can now identify their own sub-groups at YDNA surname projects & happily focus on their specific clade (branch)..which would be totally impossible with papertrails. It is the way forward to "de-fustify" the world of genealogy & find the real truth about our bloodline origins in the shortest, easiest time..

Also for those seeking to break through impasses. Even such basic information as haplogroups, and general geographical locations of mediaeval MRCA's etc..which might be difficult or impossible to glean from papertrail records. YDNA provides a powerful short-cut to research.

I have doubts whether the author has in-depth experience about the domain of YDNA. Has he taken a Y67 test? Does he know his haplogroup?
His clade?
These are not incidentals; but basic prerequisites.
I recommend such topics should IDEALLY fill up 50% OF ANY SUCH BOOK.
