Library Journal - Library Journal
One of the classic British Isles genealogy handbooks, this book has been available since 1982 ( LJ 11/15/82). The 1991 edition is described as ``revised and updated for the 1990s,'' but the material is basically the same except for address changes. Baxter provides solid information on getting started, corresponding with organizations, and preparing a family history. County record offices for all counties, as well as the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man, records divided between Eire and Northern Ireland, and Scotland's regional archives are included. Information is also provided on using Mormon and Jewish rec ords, and records for adoption, the military, and wills. The bibliography is basic but current. Recommended for libraries if an earlier edition is not owned.-- Judith P. Reid, Library of Congress
