Genealogy online


"In this edition, the author assumes you know most Internet technologies and programs, and that you want to know how to use them to do your genealogy. The potential for finding clues, data, and other researchers looking for your same family names has increased exponentially in the last decade. Since 2000, push technology, streaming video, blogs, podcasts, social networking, and indexed document scans have radically changed what can be found on the Internet and how we search for it. If you feel you need formal instruction in researching family history, online courses, from basic self-paced text to college-level instruction, can now make that happen. In short, online genealogy has never been better, and it's a good time to try your hand at it!"-- Provided by publisher.
