    Very highly recommended.

    Bought this book hoping to find some information in my chaos of family history. Not only did I make sense of it all, thanks to some wonderful tips, but I was able to discard duplicates and triplicates of information "discovered" years apart. I had everything in such an order I was able to scan my documents and share it with my siblings. Now, I'm spending more time finding new information instead of duplicating information that I've lost or forgotten I ever found in the first place. For the beginner or highly piled family historian, this book is a must have!

    Recommended for the Beginning Genealogist

    Explanations and Examples of how to begin organizing your research for the beginner. Good for a refresher when papers have become out-of-bounds and out-of-hand.
