Product description


Most of us are keen to know more about our 'roots' - where our family came from and what they did. At first glance, it seems simple enough to document names, dates and relationships on a flow chart. But the task soon becomes complex, and many people just give up. Geared for both beginning genealogists and experienced family historians who have hit the proverbial 'research wall', this book guides the reader through all the processes, from the basics of identifying members of their family trees to the complexities of using historic records at home and abroad. Each section of the book identifies commonly encountered problems during the phase of the process being examined, while the unique 'Problem Solver' boxes provide practical, understandable solutions to specific difficulties at every stage. The book is clearly and simply organized; each chapter is sub-divided into key sections, each of which is introduced with its own dedicated Overview spread featuring Quick Guide flow charts and easy-to-use research summary Checklists. Dos and Don'ts pull-outs, meanwhile, guide the reader through research and documentation basics at every stage.
