Beginning Genealogy is a step-by-step guide for genealogists, illustrating the best practices of family history research, from established genealogy standards and my career as a genealogy librarian/archivist.

Your desire to find out more about your ancestors is the beginning of an adventure.

In addition to the personal insights you’ll gain, as a genealogist you’ll learn about history, languages, geography, ethnicity and culture, and everyday life in the past. As the family historian, you’ll also sharpen skills related to critical thinking and problem-solving. I can’t think of another interest that spans so many areas.
