OK for a very basic introduction to genealogy, but overly simplified, I thought, and not as informative as one would like even if one is baby-new to the art and science of genealogy. Wouldn't recommend. ( )

This was my first how-to book when I first found an interest in genealogy. It served me well and prevented some of the mistakes commonly made by new genealogists. ( )

After I got this book I was pretty disapointed at the lack of support for people trying to track their geneology to Europe as well as African-Americans trying to track ancestry to Africa. Besides that, very informative. ( )
