Details: “While most genealogy books focus on original records and primary sources, this title focuses on secondary sources that have proliferated because of the growth of genealogy. It identifies and explains the vast number of published genealogical sources, acting both as a guidebook and a bibliography to the printed material in the field. The introduction alone is a treasure trove of information and should be called Genealogy Sources 101. Coverage includes encyclopedias, gazetteers, indexes, abstracts, histories, biographies, military sources, periodicals, and much more. Appendixes include major genealogical libraries in the United States, and a list of genealogical publishers and booksellers. This monumental source is highly recommended in all libraries for the beginner or expert” “Outstanding Reference Sources: the 1999 Selection of New Titles”, American Libraries, May 1999.
