Weighty in the literal sense. This is a large reference book. It is well done, thoughtful, well edited, and most of all useful for on-site training, an excellent resource for cultural heritage institutions (library, museum, archive, historical society), and as a text for formal education. It would be a tough sell to anyone other than serious family history researchers and professionals. ( )

Genealogists and other historical researchers have valued the first two editions of this work, often referred to as "the genealogist's bible." The new edition continues that tradition. Intended as a handbook and a guide to selecting, locating, and using appropriate primary and secondary resources, The Source also functions as an instructional tool for novice genealogists and a refresher course for experienced researchers.

Each chapter ends with an extensive bibliography and is further enriched by tables, black-and-white illustrations, and examples of documents. Eight appendixes include the expected contact information for groups and institutions that persons studying genealogy and history need to find.… (more)
