Book descriptionFirst in the new Quillen’s Essentials of Genealogy series, this book covers the use of computers and the Internet to successfully do your own genealogical research.

My thoughtsI really liked this book and thought it had a lot to offer. I liked all the websites it listed and that it gave descriptions of each and what type of information you could get from them. There are some hints that the author gave me to help get past some roadblocks I have. I also liked how the author used personal touches from his own family searches to show you how things worked. I will be going back to this book many times to help me in my own search for my ancestors.
