This book goes beyond the great tips I covered in my earlier book, "Basic Genealogy," and gives many additional methods and sources to find more information to help create an incredible family history of your ancestors. My new book includes the basic material from "Basic Genealogy." It contains new material that covers search tips, organization, an outline of steps to find where your European immigrants left, and the basics of using DNA testing in genealogy. I want to share my successes in my genealogy research with the reader to help them enjoy more success in researching their family history. My goal for this book is to outline the steps that I should have followed to begin my genealogical research and give tips to make everyone successful. These are the steps that I now follow. I developed my current methods after some wasted efforts to learn what not to do. I know my book will prove helpful to you. Following these steps should help you to be more efficient in your beginning research than I was. The book will give you a method to get started in your research and hopefully give you a plan to find your family history. We will cover the initial portion of genealogical research so that you will become familiar with genealogical sources. We will discuss the use of documents such as census records, passenger manifests, vital records, and others that will help identify your family members and will also give you information about your family's history. I also cover methods and sources to help find where our European immigrants left. These will be basic steps. I would suggest reading my book "Finding Grandma's European Ancestors" when you are ready to start looking for your ancestors in European records.
