Details: Family history is one of the most popular pursuits in America-people want to connect with those who came before. But as the opportunities to explore records and other resources grow, so does the need to understand the myriad ways to access and learn from those records and resources. Like its predecessors, this edition of The Source: A Guidebook to American Genealogy discusses the wealth of sources available to researchers and provides timely advice on how to use them. The world of family history research, however, is much different than when the previous edition was released. The Internet, enhanced computer technologies, and other advancements have changed the genealogical landscape in the last ten years. The expert contributors to this volume not only explore these new online resources, they also remind the reader that the fundamentals of family history research remain unchanged.
Named the American Library Association’s Best Reference for its first edition back in 1984, The Source is an indispensable part of any family history library. Written by industry innovators, each section gets to the heart of the topic, giving readers and researchers a personal, how-to lesson in family history. Now, with this third edition, The Source maintains its role as the Standard that all other family history and genealogy guides strive to achieve. It’s the one family history reference you’ll reach for over and over again.
