Finding your roots : easy-to-do genealogy and family history


"A librarian and authority on genealogical research offers advice and encouragement to those who are eager to uncover their family history in this guidebook. Getting started, research techniques, interviewing tips, and effective use of the library and internet are all discussed in detail in this book that is ideal for beginners and novices. The benefits and importance of genealogical research are also explored. Also included is a discussion on how a person's own identity is linked to their ancestors, and knowledge of forebearers can contribute to a sense of security and family pride that is missing in many mobile and disjointed modern families. Showing how a soundly researched family history can also enhance an individual's understanding of war, hardship, and larger historical events, this work grants insight into the personality traits and health issues of one's descendants"-- Provided by publisher.
