Ultimate Guide to Genealogy Records

As someone who is relatively new to genealogy, it can be difficult to keep track of all the different types of records, as well as the information they each offer. The Ultimate Guide to Genealogy Records breaks down records by categories (censuses, vital records, immigration records, etc.) and provides a quick reference to what exactly these records are and how they fit into your ancestor’s story. Not only that, but this book provides strategies for how to find and use these records in your research. All in all, this book is not only a practical guide for beginners, but a good reminder of best practices for more advanced genealogists as well!

2018 Virtual DNA Conference Self-Study Workshop Download

At 50 percent off, now is the time to get the video class or kit that really targets genealogy skills you want to improve. For me, that’s DNA. I know a little about identifying how I’m related to matches. But videos like the ones in the 2018 Virtual DNA Conference Self-Study Workshop will show me how to use strategies like triangulation, phasing and chromosome browsers (which, frankly, sound a little scary) to make REAL family discoveries with my DNA results.
