They Came in Ships

They Came in Ships

If you are, as I was, baffled by the maze of microfilm and sources involved in trying to track down your ancestors' ships lists, you need this book!! The author very clearly explains the how the films are indexed, the exceptions to the rules, etc. Perhaps the most useful aspect of this book is the way the author walks you through various examples of how to take whatever information you have about your ancestor and how to use the indexes to track down where to start searching for your ancestor's ship. I read this book cover to cover twice, then tackled the library, and finally accomplished something! I recommend it VERY highly. 0916489426

Handybook

The Handybook for Genealogists (9th Edition)

This is an absolutely wonderful sourcebook for working with various government records (Federal, state, and county) for genealogy. It tells you very precisely what type of records are available over what time for individual jurisdictions. It is really quite amazing, for example, to find out the specific years that land title information is available for a specific county. The book is a treasure trove, in that it gives you all of the contact information you need to get in touch with various information sources.1890895032

Organizing Your Family History Search : Efficient & Effective Ways to Gather and Protect Your Genealogical Research

As experienced genealogists everywhere will testify, few hobbies generate more paperwork than genealogy. In her latest guide, Sharon DeBartolo Carmack successfully tackles the arduous process of organizing family research, from filing piles of paper to streamlining the process as a whole. She reveals how to create a flexible filing system that can expand with new data; how to take notes according to this filing system; how to set up an efficient work space, and how to store photos, CD-ROMs, archival correspondence and more.

Carmack even offers techniques for preserving precious family histories for future generations through wills and archives.1558705112

Who's Who in My Family

Who's Who in My Family?

Ages 3-6. Young children unclear about their place in their family will find this book a big help in sorting out where they fit in and learning the terms associated with family relationships. The animal students in Ms. Fox's class take turns explaining the family trees they made. The first student comes from a traditional family, the next is adopted, and several are from blended families. The family-tree diagrams appear in their entirety so that overall relationships can be seen, but there are also close-ups of small sections and full-page pictures showing families playing, eating, and enjoying being together. The illustrations have a charming childlike quality, and by showing families made up of different animals, they aptly reinforce the book's basic theme. 0823414787
