Genealogy for Beginners
by Katherine Pennavaria
I received a complimentary ARC copy of Genealogy for Beginners by Katherine Pennavaria from Netgalley Rowman & Littlefield in order to read and give an honest review.
… a fantastic book for those who are just starting out to those, like myself who began the process but abandoned the search…
Genealogy for Beginners is just that an amazing guide for newbies like myself. It is an easy to understand, comprehensive and well-written guide to getting anyone started on their search or just back on track if they have gotten stuck.
Author, Katherine Pennavaria walks us step by step on the search for our long lost family. We learn effective strategies on how to be a researcher from where to begin, how to manage and record our findings to interviewing existing family members. Pennavaria gives us sage advice on how to manage and organise family photos and documents and directs us to endless resources and how to find information in real life and online.
A fantastic book for those who are just starting out to those, like myself who began the process but abandoned the search out of frustration. This will be a book that I will return to time and again on my genealogy journey.
