How did your ancestors arrive in America? By land migration or across the sea?

This book guides you through easy to follow instructions to discover your roots and avoid the pitfalls and dead ends that frustrate and halt even the most experienced genealogists.

What are some of these secrets? Learn how to use the Internet to your advantage and how to pinpoint the information that relates to your ancestors. Learn how to use message boards and how to ask questions that people will be willing to take the time to answer.

Explore ways to keep your genealogy information organized and on track. With a little effort you can get your family research project started, and soon you'll be the go-to person for your entire family.

Included are guides to free research websites, state by state sources, and sites that give you access to ships passenger manifests, archives, and other historical sources.

Where does the time go? Before we know it, we're on the last branch remaining on the family tree, and leaves are getting sparse. Oftentimes, when we begin tracing our roots, there are very few living sources of information left to us. We seem to begin our interest in our own history when we are close to becoming part of it! As you'll come to discover, it's never too late to start down the path of tracing your family, and even a novice genealogist can be very successful at tracking down their ancestors.
