I checked out a bunch of family history books from the city library. Many of them I found interesting, but stopped reading them about 1/3 of the way into them. This one held my interest so much that I bought 8 copies and handed them out at a 2012 family reunion.

This is a nice step by step book focusing on resarching our elusive female ancestors. If you have a brickwall, this book may be of help to you. There are many suggestions about records and diaries which you may not have thought about tracing. Quite helpful!

Carmack's writing is enjoyable and very readable. This is an excellent guide for beginning your research for your immigrant (or ethnic) ancestors. She gives you a heads up on pitfalls to watch for such as how to analyze published family histories and there is a good chapter on the immigrant experience. Many resources for continued research are cited. If you're really serious into genealogy you may wish to purchase this one.
