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.
