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.
