Foreword Genealogy is akin to assembling a jigsaw puzzle about ancestors, one generation at a time. This fascinating hobby quite naturally begins at home and expands to research in public records of many kinds.
If you've ever thought of find your roots, Emily Anne Croom's is the genealogy guide to get you going. She's got sensible chapters on how to get started, the meaning of names, the difference between a family history of dates and a family history of stories, how to gather sources, who to interview, and how to fit it all together. Croom breaks the process into bite-sized pieces to turn it into a fun project that takes shape and grows with each new family scrap.
