RootsWeb Newsroom

RootsWeb Newsroom ยป About the Authors
RootsWeb Guide to Tracing Family Trees indexes:
"If you can't get rid of the skeleton in your closet, you'd best teach it to dance.' --George Bernard Shaw (1856-1950)"

The RootsWeb Guide is a great resource for newbies as well as more experienced family historians. The 31 online lessons provide a comprehensive overview into understanding the use of various record types, and how to effectively research and locate records in various countries and ethnic groups. There are even lessons on how to effectively search for names that are spelled differently and the ins and outs of using the Internet in your research. These lessons provide both a discussion on each topic and links to valuable web sites with additional resources and instructions.

We want the RootsWeb Guide to remain a great resource for the family history community and the dynamic nature of web sites has made it necessary to replace or remove the broken links in these lessons. To date we have finished updating the first 12 lessons.

Good luck in your research.
