Overview

80 million Americans have expressed an interest in learning about their ancestral past and constructing a family tree. However, most don't have the basic knowledge and skills needed to get started. Find Your Roots Now!, a new ebook provides a road map for new genealogists and those wanting to move to the next level in their research. Proper research and documentation techniques are discussed in detail. This book combines the best family research methodology with modern technology to help advance the field of genealogy. As an example, there are over 25 hyperlinks to databases, books and articles on church records alone, normally a difficult topic to research. Readers will be taught the "Pyramid" system of family research. Under this method, a solid base is built to lay the ground work for future research. If the more recent generations are not researched properly before moving backward in time, the entire family line could collapse under the weight of unsupportable conclusions. Proper research and citation methods will avoid this problem. Readers will learn about census records, military records, pension, court and land records, to name a few. For those wanting to publish their work, extensive information is provided to connect with specialty publishers or learning how to self-publish. DNA family research has become increasing more popular with advanced testing techniques. A full chapter is devoted to creating your own DNA family research project.

Meet the Author

Joe Long has over 35 years of hands-on experience researching his family tree. With this book, he brings this knowledge to beginning researchers and adds a twist by including hundreds of hot-links to relevant genealogical websites. As a result, the beginning researcher can quickly learn not only how, but where to start their search for ancestors. Joe has spent countless hours roaming library shelves, digging through courthouse basements, walking cemeteries and staring bleary-eyed at census records on microfilm. With Internet technology, many of these records are now available at the touch of a computer button. However, sound research techniques are still required to create a professional family tree. Joe shows readers the right way to research.
