Genealogy Online presents a wealth of information having to do with finding facts about family lineage on the Internet. While the book is primarily a directory of larger genealogy Web sites, newsgroups, mailing lists, and commercial services, Elizabeth also offers an introduction to Web communities and the tools you need to participate in them.
The potential for finding clues, data, and other researchers looking for the same family names has increased exponentially since the last edition of this book was published. Elizabeth now explains push technology, streaming video, blogs, podcasts, and indexed document scans, all of which have radically changed what can be found online and how we search for it. She has also included a special appendix relating to hiring a professional genealogist, and an extensive glossary of genealogy terms.
Whether you are just getting started, or experienced at genealogical resources, this book gives you all the tools, techniques, and advice to quickly and effortlessly sort through all the information available on the Internet. Of particular interest is Chapter 18: A Potpourri of Genealogy, where Elizabeth embarks on finding the Golden Needles in the World Wide Haystack!
Elizabeth conducts genealogy workshops throughout the South, and contributes articles to Digital Genealogist magazine.
Now available at Amazon.com: Genealogy Online, Eighth Edition.
