I haven't completed the book as yet but what I have used and read seems to be easier to figure out where I was going wrong before I had the book. It is easy to read and understand

This book is great. It has helped me trace my ancestry back more than ten generations and to four different countries. I recommend this book to any new or experienced genealogists!

This is a wonderful book. It is very helpful and knowledgeable tool. It was very helpful for beginners like me. It provides definitions for words you may come across in your searches, "Pedigree Pitfalls" which are tips on how to avoid setbacks in your researching. Christine Rose and Kay Germain Ingalls are very knowledgeable and very experienced professional genealogists who instead of providing facts and info on genealogy, provided you with examples and experiences they had encountered. They provide their own opinion on how to best search for your information. They also expressed the need to cite your sources. I gave this book 5 stars because itr is a wonderful and fully enjoyable research tool.

A very helpful genealogy reference for the beginner. Especially helpful if you're in the "I want to trace my roots. How do I begin, where do I start, and how do I go about doing it?" situation.
Contains a lot of helpful common sense tips that will prevent future headaches. A lot of well thought out suggestions and tips too.
I especially like how when they suggest you talk to your extended family and interview them for genealogy information that you be patient with them and let them tell their stories. A lot of well-mannered tips like these are what elevate this book to excellence.
A lot of the confusing aspects of genealogical research such as document requests and providing proof and evidence are well covered.
I highly recommend this book for the beginner to intermediate level genealogist.

Whether you are just beginning to explore your family history or are well on your way, this is the book to keep on hand. If you are a beginner it guides you through the process of getting started effectively. The experienced researcher will find invaluable information here, too. I highly recommend this one.
