There is a wealth of data on the Web for those researching a family tree. However, the sheer volume of information and diversity of websites can make starting your search confusing and time-consuming. Help is at hand with this clear and authoritative guide from The National Archives.

The Genealogist's Internet starts by explaining how the internet works for the beginner. It continues by detailing the major sources of primary data available to family historians on-line and highlights the most helpful directories and gateways. Use it to contact others with the same surname or to access the numerous forums, discussion groups, mailing lists and newsgroups focusing on genealogy.

This edition includes new information on fully-updated URLS as well as covering:

* developments in the indexes to births, marriage and deaths on-line
* the expansion in the census and wills data available on-line
* the new websites of the National Archives and General Register Office
* new sites with historical maps and photographs
* the Online Parish Clerk schemes (for putting parish data on the Web)
* lottery-funded projects relating to historical material which have come to fruition since the previous edition
* sites on the use of DNA testing in genealogy and DNA surname studies
* genealogy blogs, a type of on-line journal which has become popular
* major changes in the world of search engines
* future developments in on-line genealogy
* a timeline of on-line genealogy resources for the British Isles

The Genealogist's Internet is accompanied by its own website with updates on all the information covered in the book: www.spub.co.uk/tgi3/

5.0 out of 5 stars Information Aug. 20 2007
By jim
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I purchased this and another book published by british archives.
This book was was much more suitable for internet genealogy searches.
Its only weakness is that it was published in 2005, but there is a web
site with updates. The book is mainly geared to united kingdom searching.
Best to read it before spending money on commercial services.

5.0 out of 5 stars a good resource March 23 2007
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I borrowed the second edition from the local library and have decided to buy the third edition. While the reviews of software and how to set up a website can become a little dated, you only need get one or two good ideas out of a book like this to make it more than worth the cost.
