This book is perfectly pitched at this level for me. It starts with the basics, and so would also be useful for beginners, and is full of useful stuff. Peter Christian covers what you will need to know to start and the usual suspects to start with. I found this quite good to read anyway in case I had missed something (which I had!). There is too much out there for the casual researcher to assume they have thought of everything.
He then takes you through the various types of historical records available to you from birth records and censuses to parish records and military records. For each he gives information and links, suggestions of where to try and also cautions about where the limits of internet research could hold you back. I particularly found his narrative on where it is other factors, such as government cutbacks or legislation, which were preventing the information from being more readily accessible, very interesting reading.
The book also contains information on recording and preserving your research with suggestions you might want to try along with their pros and cons making it a good all round guide.
I personally found this a brilliant guide that I know I will be going back to time and time again.Read more ›

Wow a must have book for all genealogists. I never realised till I purchased this book just how many online sites are out there on the Internet. Great readingPublished 13 months ago by M. Driver
It's too early to be definitive as I've only just started to read it, but it's likely to be useful in pointing me to sources of information I'm not currently aware of.Published 22 months ago by Steve Hickford
