If you have been involved in genealogy, reading genealogical magazines, watching webinars, and attending conferences for awhile, you will find very little new content here. The book functions as a compendium of resources with some added narrative. MacEntee discusses donations to repositories and a few other options, but the short book assumes no other family members shares your genealogical interest. Detail is lacking, particularly on the best option of all--writing and publishing your documented family story. Almost all genealogical repositories accept published books within the scope of their collection. The author puts perhaps too much emphasis on digitization and digital technologies in an era in which technology changes rapidly. A balance is necessary. Still the book is helpful for beginning genealogists. ( )
