The following book review was written by Bobbi King:
This is the second edition of Ms. Golds’ book. In her first edition, she focused on research in the British Isles, but in this follow-up edition, she expands her instruction to the United States, Canada, the Caribbean, and Europe.
So contrary to most of the books I receive to review, this one is not U.S.-centric. Its emphasis is on British research.
I would call this a beginner’s guidebook. It’s not long, so the reader won’t become overwhelmed with the task ahead, but Ms. Golds offers words of encouragement that help the apprentice genealogist get going along with hope and expectation that carried us all through our own dark days and nights.
