Amazon Review

There's a good deal of scaremongering around about how the Internet creates socially-isolated individuals. What these critics forget is that the Internet is a powerful tool for bringing people together. One example is family trees. There are hundreds of sites on the Web which help trace your ancestors--and Genealogy Online arms you with all the tools you need to build your family tree in cyberspace.

Besides covering Internet basics, Genealogy Online points you to the most influential chat rooms, explains how to get e-mail-based family tree newsletters, tells you where to buy commercial software which will generate surname lists with links to web pages and sources of information and lists newsgroups which might help you track down relatives. At times there is too much explanation of the basics of the Internet, and some readers might wonder why there are frequent references to Mormons. (It's a Mormon religious duty to research families, and Mormons have created many useful genealogy resources.) However if you are genuinely trying to hunt down a long-lost family member or you are a budding family historian, your detective work will be much quicker if you follow the tips and clues in this well-researched and informative book.--Justin Hunt --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.


... In the most recent edition of her best-selling guide, Crowe, a former contributing editor to Computer Currents, aims to instruct all levels of researchers on the joys and perils of online genealogy. Similar to Cindy Howell's Netting Your Ancestors in its introductory discussions of technical issues and online tools, Crowe's first three chapters cover what readers will need to know to begin online genealogy research - selecting the necessary hardware and software; choosing an ISP; understanding browsers, email, and spam; and learning to organize family data. Two very helpful chapters on Usenet newsgroups and genealogy mailing lists follow, with explanations of their workings and descriptions of the more popular lists to explore. Crowe then covers the major online resources that researchers would do well to investigate. A glossary of error messages, computer-related terms, and emoticons round out the book. With her thorough but not overwhelming descriptions, Crowe provides genealogists with a solid roadmap for successful searching. Libraries currently owning earlier editions will want to purchase this one for the updated information. Recommended for public and genealogy library collections. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

4.0 out of 5 stars Genealogy Online 9/E review 3 Mar. 2012
By RDLilly - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I discovered an early edition of this book at a local library and decided I should add it to my library.

Genealogy Online has much information about sources for online research. Much of the data can go out of date as on-line sources come, go, or move to new locations. The author recognizes this and updates the book frequently which accounts for the current book being the ninth edition. When shopping for the book be sure that you are getting the current edition.

I chose to buy a new copy from Amazon as most of the used books available did not identify the edition being offered. The edition is identified on the front cover but can not always be read in the small image accompanying the offers.

I do find the book very useful and recommend it for identifying online data sources that you might not otherwise locate.

4.0 out of 5 stars A must read for those starting their genealogy research 3 July 2012
By eChef94 - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I read several books and found this one to be the most informative. It has several ideas and references to help on the quest of finding your roots. Due to the way the speed at which things change there are some WEB references that are no longer valid but the overall message is spot on. After reading this I was able to quickly pick a software package to record my info and get started. Six months later I now have over 125 family members listed and documented. All this due to the books references on where to look and how.
