Publisher's Description


Secrets of Tracing Your Ancestors, now featuring a two-color look, is an easy-to-read guide to beginning genealogy.  Quillen teaches the basics of getting started and guides readers through the tricks and techniques of professional genealogists, and best of all the book is filled with real-life examples. Readers are pointed to the most current web sites and government records where information can be gleaned.  Overlooked resources – such as military records – are identified and instructions for procuring and using them are included.  Readers will also be treated to detailed suggestions on how to write an effective and interesting life history that will be treasured by the budding genealogist’s descendants.


This third revised edition has expanded and revised sections in Internet research, including new techniques and web sites; ethnic research; the latest information available on census access and availability; and more ideas on how to do your own Life History.


QUOTE:  "Shows those new to the hobby how to begin, while showing seasoned family historians some new tricks … with passion and a touch of humor." – Family Chronicle Magazine
