Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
The National Archives in England has released an update of its very popular book, The Genealogist’s Internet. The author, Peter Christian, is a person well known in the British genealogical community and has been researching his own genealogy for over 30 years. The book focuses entirely on British Isles genealogy. It tells how to access genealogical records and make contacts with others all over the world from your computer.

This is the fourth edition: a new and much expanded version. The new edition has almost 400 pages, doubling the pages and information since the first edition eight years ago. It is a valuable resource and is a very comprehensive guide to researching British family history on the Internet.

If you use a computer, I highly recommend this useful book as a valuable tool for your British Isles genealogy research.
