Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
A genealogical author, columnist, and popular lecturer, Carmack delivers a friendly and informed guide that can help both the beginning and experienced genealogist. In a direct, well-organized text, she approaches research via the phone, mail, the Internet, or hired professionals, covering resources and repositories that range from fingertip sources, forms, interviews, and research trips to professional genealogical certification and accreditation venues. Inviting and unpyrotechnic, the text concludes with encouragement and options for turning raw research material into some ultimate form of treasured legacy, be it a book, article, or album. Besides being well crafted and comprehensive, this book is written with care and respect. Easier to use but just as professional as Mark D. Herber's Ancestral Trails (LJ 3/1/98), this book also dovetails nicely with Charley Kempthorne's For All Time (LJ 9/15/96).Scott Hightower, New York Univ., New York
