BOOK - 500 Best Genealogy and Family History Tips
By Thomas MacEntee
Published by Unlock the Past, Australia , 2015
This edition printed and bound in Canada by GlobalGenealogy.com Inc.
'500 Best Genealogy and Family History Tips' could be be described as a 'brain dump' of me, Thomas MacEntee, and my many years of knowledge about genealogy and family history.
Basically what I've done is to extract my favourite tips and tricks from over 85 presentations, 10 books and numerous articles. In addition, I've reviewed the social media posts and conversations from Facebook, Twitter and other platforms to highlight those issues most important to today's genealogists.
What will you find in this 'best tips' guide? Everything from practical ways to use Google, advice on protecting your privacy online, information about secret or little known resources for genealogy research and more. The best way to use this guide is to browse the table of contents to find a topic of interest. Also simply search the book when trying to find a solution to a problem, such as how to cite a source or locate an app to generate bibliographic information.
