My Best Genealogy Tips: Quick Keys to Research Ancestry will assist beginners and researchers who feel they need to start over. This is the first in a series of books that will walk you through getting an oral history interview, using historical records rather than family trees for proving research, and making sure you remember to include the things expert researchers have admittedly forgotten. You will avoid the common pitfalls many seasoned researchers have fallen into such as what to do when you find a photo that you would like to use or making sure you tell the most important family history — your own! Become proficient with where to look for resources that match where your ancestors lived and when they lived in a particular place. I have answered thousands of questions from researchers around the globe. This series will enable you to help yourself.
My Best Genealogy Tips: Quick Keys to Research Ancestry by Robin R. Foster is a great resource for beginners. This nonfiction guidebook provides the necessary steps to achieve those hard-to-find family records. It informs one of the info they need and how to go about the search. I found this information crucial as I have previously tried to find out more about my mom’s side of the family. I knew absolutely nothing about my mom’s parents and was curious. In doing my ancestry search I did come up with no information and this book provided me with the whys and how to get through those barriers. The details on these pages are listed in bullet form and easy to read. The book is well-organized, and the author does have prior knowledge that others like me would find helpful.
