Mastering Online Genealogy Review

Mastering Online Genealogy written by W. Daniel Quillen is a great little book packed full of helpful tips in doing online family research. This book is the first in his new Quillen’s Essentials of Genealogy series. It covers the use of computers and the Internet to successfully do your own genealogical research. He shows readers how to use the Internet as an effective genealogical research tool. He covers the following points:

Quillen states in his introduction, “Mastering Online Genealogy will help you learn (or relearn, or practice) how to use one of the greatest tools for information research and location ever created: the Internet. Daily, thousands upon thousands of documents formerly available only by expensive and time-consuming personal visits to distant locations are coming online. As you learn the techniques and sources of information in this book, you’ll be able to find and access these records in record time, and be able to find more and more of your ancestors.”

One of my favorite chapters in this book is on Government Records. He discusses topics such as Census, Birth & Death Records, Immigration & Naturalization, Military Records, and much more. This informative books has some great tips for beginners, as well as those who have been doing research for a while.

I look forward to reading all of the books in this genealogical series. Some of Quillen’s other books in the Essentials of Genealogy series are:
