While other guidebooks to online genealogy provide a multitude of Web sites, none of them tells readers how to use and analyze the sites themselves. The first book in the Family Tree Magazine Library, published by America's most popular family history magazine, Finding Your Roots Online breaks new ground in offering readers a step-by-step reference, with real examples, for using the Internet effectively in genealogical research. Nancy Hendrickson's structured, easy-to-follow approach covers the basics of sound genealogical research, then launches readers online armed with the proper tools for getting the most success with the least amount of frustration. They'll learn how to get the most out of Internet resources and recognize when a research problem can't be solved online. Finding Your Roots Online is the first step-by-step guide to getting results from the online genealogy boom. Not just another list of sites, this book reveals the strategies for successfully researching one's family tree in the forest of Web sites, databases and search engines. Readers will learn how to be an "Internet detective" and use today's technology to find their family's past. GENEALOGY Genealogy is the second-most popular subject on the Internet - after sex - as shown by the response to the new Ellis Island Web site. The most popular launch in Internet history, the site attracted more than 2.5 billion hits in its first year. But with the exploding popularity of genealogy online, family history researchers need help picking the best sites and using them to trace their roots. With more than 5 million genealogy sites now crowding cyberspace, how can readers sort through them all and select the handful that have their ancestor answers? Where do they even start? This book shows them how.
