However, it was clear to understand and it was written by someone who obviously understands his field.
I think someone starting out could learn a lot. Unfortunately, those of us that have got far enough to find brick walls are less likely to be beginners.
Not bad. Just nothing new for anyone who's been doing genealogy for a year or more.
The title is slightly misleading as this is in fact an overview of the sources available to those conducting family history research. Beginners will no doubt learn a thing or two, but intermediate researchers will find little that is new to them and those seeking strategies to overcome a 'brick wall' will be disappointed. The advice is vague and general with few examples of how a particular source or technique can be used to overcome a particular problem.
Pauline M. Litton's 'Pitfalls and Possibilities in Family History Research' covers a similar topic much better and is packed with useful information in comparison to this flimsy volume.
* Using Newspapers as sources of BMDs
* Cluster genealogy and communities
This book is uptodate and brings you up to speed using the new online data sources.
Very well done Graeme!
