    Take Your Genealogy a Step Further

    I own many genealogy books, but this title The Family Tree Problem Solver is an ideal book from which the genealogy enthusiast can learn and grow. It not only explained what to do regarding genealogy problems, but also taught how to interpret and use the new information to solve genealogy problems. The chapters cover finding births, marriages and deaths before civil records, using census records, collateral kin, court records, land records, sorting out people with the same names, finding ancestors before 1850 and more. I feel the book is most helpful to someone a bit past the beginner stage, but don't wait too long before getting into this type of genealogical problem-solving. It was eye-opening and very helpful.

    A Great Beyond-the-Basics book

    Family Tree Problem Solver takes you beyond the quick on-line searches for family history information. Rising's approach of getting to know the people, not just looking for vital statistics, makes a family tree come alive. If you have done all the easy reseach through the internet and are missing information on your forebears, this book will point out where to go next.
