Family history reads with Karen Clare

Top choice

Back in 1973, when the first edition of this classic volume rolled off the presses, researching family history was a very different kettle of fish. Since then this leading American guide has been updated every few years, the last incarnation being in 2000. Of course, those who diligently researched their family history in the pre- or early internet days will know that, in the past 18 years, our wonderfully addictive hobby has been revolutionalised by the web. US genealogist Val D Greenwood has kept abreast of the rapid developments, but offers the wise advice for newcomers everywhere that quality, thorough, fact-based research is still the key to successfully tracing your ancestors – and, despite enormous progression, not all records are online.
