Overview
-

Jonathan Scott’s Family History Web Directory is an information-packed reference guide that distills the best of the internet into one easy-to-use format. Themed sections cover different topics, from ‘getting started’ to specific occupations, and there is an index reproducing all the websites in A-Z order. His handbook is a vital source for less experienced researchers, and a handy aide-memoire for more seasoned campaigners.
Web addresses are listed by topic, then in order of importance and usefulness. An extraordinary range of sites that will interest family historians is included – from records of births and deaths, tax, crime and religion, to military records and records of work and occupations. Also featured are sites that give information about archives, blogs and forums, social networking and sharing research.
The internet can be an overwhelming place for the genealogist. Jonathan Scott’s book provides readers with online shortcuts, tips for getting the best from well-known websites, plus the details of all kinds of lesser-known and hard-to-find sources.
