Genealogical research is one of the fastest growing pastimes in the United States, and libraries are going to be the first stop for those eager to find their roots. The well-equipped librarian will want The Librarian's Genealogy Notebook at the ready when encountering both leisurely and rabid genealogy researchers.
The Librarian's Genealogy Notebook includes the most concise and useful information on where to begin your search for genealogical records. The introduction provides the information librarians need to help patrons get started on their own family histories. Author Dahrl E. Moore helps librarians mine their own libraries for reference sources that might already be available. This vital resource contains useful advice on obtaining information from external sources and also offers general sources libraries may want to provide access to or own. Included are guides to the complete range of sources, such as:
-- A basic genealogical bibliography
-- State, county, city, and town sources
-- Large genealogical societies
-- Genealogical records such as vital records, passenger lists, land records, wills, and probate
-- Computer databases, Internet sites, and the World Wide Web
Both location and access are provided for these sources and many others. Easy to use checklists help librarians direct patrons to the right information throughout their research.
