I’m a little biased this week in choosing the book that was my baby for most of the
spring and early summer.
Family Tree Sourcebook, now available for pre-order (and on sale at 34
percent off), is a reference book with all the information you need to trace your
roots across the United States:
A summary of genealogy research in every state, with a historical overview, vital
records information, tips on other major records to look for and places to begin,
and maps showing county boundaries.
Detailed county-level data telling you which county office to contact for court, probate,
vital, and other types of records. Here’s an example:
Names, addresses, phone numbers and websites for helpful libraries, archives, and
genealogical and historical societies in each state.
Bibliographies listing genealogical and historical books that will help you further
your research in each state.
Special sections on the best websites for state-based research, as well as broader-scope,
The book comes with a free 30-day trial of Family
Tree Magazine Plus, our members-only, online archive of expert genealogy articles
from past issues of Family Tree Magazine. (The book’s content also is searchable
online as part of a Plus membership.)
