One of the newest additions to ShopFamilyTree.com is our CD International
Genealogy Passport: Your Ticket to Tracing Your Roots in the Old Country.
This is an update to the International Genealogy Passport we published in early
2007 (our very first CD). That one was popular, so we thought it was time for a brand-new
version with updated listings of websites, books and archives for countries around
the globe, plus some other enhancements.
Distance, language, hard-to-access records and travel costs can make it challenging
to do genealogy research in your ancestral homeland, so the new International Genealogy
Passport gives you a head start with:
country-by-country genealogy resources for Canada, Europe, Asia, the Middle East,
Africa, Australia and New Zealand, Mexico, Central and South America, and the Caribbean
best websites for learning about history, culture, records and genealogical research
(just click each URL to visit the site)
bibliographies of how-to books and published indexes to relevant records for each
place. Book titles link to free online versions when available
- addresses, phone numbers and websites of important repositories
- expert tips for contacting overseas repositories
our guide to tracing your ancestors to the old country—without having to book a plane
- maps of 53 countries show you major administrative divisions, capitals and large cities
new International Genealogy Passport CD is available now for pre-order for
$14.99 at ShopFamilyTree.com (it qualifies for our free standard shipping on US
orders over $25).
