Overview

The modern world of genealogy combines the traditional methods of research with the awesome power of computers and the Internet, a combination so powerful that it has transformed the way we do genealogy. This book is a manual for modern genealogy, designed to train the researcher in this new methodology, tying the fundamentals of genealogical research to the infrastructure of computers and websites. It shows you how to get started in your family history research; how to organize your family papers; how to enter information into a genealogy computer program so that you can easily manage, store, and retrieve your data; how to analyze the data and place it in various tables, charts, and forms; and how to put together a family history notebook--all the while using conventional records sources with a modern search and retrieval system. Mrs. Clifford's new book is also designed as an instructional manual, and each chapter of the book is a self-contained teaching module containing chapter assignments, checklists, bibliographies, and much more.
