Description
The Genealogist's Companion and Sourcebook gives you the thorough treatment of U.S. records you need: not just what sources are available, but how they can aid your research, how to access them, and how to use them. Emily Croom, author of the best-selling Unpuzzling Your Past, invites you to explore the variety of valuable sources -- from territorial papers and fire insurance maps to records found in archives and law libraries. At 464 pages, the second edition comprehensively covers records nationwide with research examples and success stories. Three in-depth case studies tap multiple sources to solve research problems. Croom, known for her accessible style and careful attention to detail, generously illustrates each chapter with sample records and includes an extensive index. Both an essential reference and a helpful how-to, the Companion and Sourcebook can provide the knowledge base you need to take the next step in your genealogy. As the author advises, you never know what gems await you in the records until you look.
