Mastering Family, Library & Church Records 2nd Edition

A must-have for any budding genealogist—fill that gap on your genealogy bookshelf!

Part of the Quillen’s Essentials of Genealogy series, this second edition will show genealogists at all levels how to find records that are often available at their fingertips. Quillen helps genealogists locate, explore and extract the most relevant information from these records. Family records often supply genealogists with far more information than most individuals are aware. Sources such as family bibles, legal papers, letters, and even old photos can provide great data. Church records in particular are routinely overlooked but can provide a wealth of genealogical information, often extending family trees back—and forward—several generations. Libraries are often great depositories of information that go unsearched as genealogists explore more exotic sources of information such as Ancestry.com, Genealogy.com and CyndisList.com. Quillen’s style of using his own ancestors to illustrate research techniques, as well as his entertaining writing style, have made each of these books popular among genealogists. Family Chronicle magazine says "Quillen approaches his subject with passion and a touch of humor."
