Virtual Roots 2.0: A Guide to Genealogy and Local History on the World Wide Web is the revised and updated edition of Scholarly Resources's top-selling guide to genealogical research on the internet. The Web has made the world much smaller, communication more instantaneous, and the searching of data from the world's archives a practical reality. But with more than one million web sites and home pages on the internet, how do users narrow the search to find the sites with the valuable information they are seeking? Virtual Roots 2.0 is a detailed directory of more than one thousand of the best genealogy and local history sites on the web, carefully selected by Thomas Jay Kemp, eminent genealogist and chair of the ALA's Genealogy Committee.

This new volume not only lists websites from around the world but also outlines the important resources and guides found at each site. The accompanying CD-ROM includes hot-links to all of the sites in the book. Now users can simply click on a link and instantly be taken to the site they have chosen.

Each entry in Virtual Roots 2.0 includes an e-mail and postal address, and where available, the telephone and/or fax number for reference staff of each website. This information enables researchers to immediately contact archives, libraries or societies around the globe while still viewing the repository's website on the computer. All of this vital data is brought together in one handy directory, making Virtual Roots 2.0 the most comprehensive and easy-to-use all-in-one-guide to genealogy on the internet.

About the Author:

Thomas Jay Kemp is assistant director of the Godfrey Memorial Library in MIddletown, Connecticut.

From Library Journal:

One needs a solid work to sort through all the Internet books for local historians, and this is it. Although a popular guide like Elizabeth Crowe's Genealogy Online: Researching Your Roots (McGraw, 1996) does walk net-wise family historians through the genealogical maze, others?notably David Hawgood's Introduction to Using Computers for Genealogy (Federation of Family History Societies, 1994)?are dated. But Kemp's work is exceptional. A well-known librarian who has written several respected books in the field, e.g., The International Vital Records Handbook (LJ 2/1/95), Kemp has produced a succinct guide that allows readers to pinpoint precisely all contact points for any web site. Better yet, he highlights the best in each category. One cavil: Readers looking for Welsh sites under "England, Wales and the Channel Islands" won't find any. Perhaps Kemp was waiting for prepublication information that never arrived. Despite that, this is arguably the current premier guide in the field.?Gail Benjafield, St. Catharines P.L., Ontario, Canada
