Recommended for professional genealogists, historical societies, and public and college libraries with strong genealogical collections.
Ohio Genealogical Society Report
This is the place to check for new titles published on your surnames or geographic places of interest as well as helping to keep up to date on new how-to manuals.

A comprehensive collection of books published in the genealogical field during one year is certainly a good idea. Mr. Kemp has done an incredible amount of digging into family histories, guides and handbooks, and genealogical sources by state.
