What a wealth of information. I consider myself an advanced amateur when it comes to genealogy research. This book has given me so many new ideas on researching documents: where to find them in each state, how to request info. from the holders of the info., and even pieces of info. I wasn't aware were available. The first part of the book was helpful in understanding the organization of the entire book. The state by state information is invaluable, as each state is different in their storage of information.
