Overview


An easy-to-use guide to finding one's ancestors with the latest in new technology and scientific techniques—including blogs, web auctions, wikis, and YouTube
 

Presenting the future of family history, this up-to-date book offers a guide to using social networking, such as Facebook and Twitter, as a research tool and explains the facts and potential of DNA testing for the genealogist. Family history research has come a long way from the local record office—now 21st-century scientific and technological developments have changed the way people look into their family pasts, allowing them to delve further back. Many tools which were not conceived with the genealogist in mind are increasingly being exploited by family historians, either to advance their research or to network with other genealogists. Many family historians struggle to cope with these new technologies and this book explains how to use these new tools effectively.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Genetics is a complicated subject, and most geneticists are profoundly incapable of explaining the subject clearly. Debbie Kennett is unparalleled in her ability to make complex science beautifully clear, and in her enthusiasm to explain how this subject really works. If you're interested in using genetics for your family tree, or even if you re already grappling with it, this book is guaranteed to make an immense and refreshing addition to your knowledge."  —Anthony Adolph, author, Tracing Your Irish Family History
