With so many publications of interest to genealogists and family history researchers on the market, it may be hard to know where to begin. Wouldn’t it be wonderful to have a librarian close at hand, to show you what is available and offer enough description of the book to help with your selection? This excellent resource guide puts a librarian on your bookshelf. It covers a variety of available works: oral history books; heritage photography books; genealogy books; localized genealogical resource books (United States, Canada and international); legal resource books; writing, bookmaking and publishing books; preservation books; and journals. Entries are grouped by subject, arranged alphabetically according to the author’s surname, and include the name of the author, title of the publication, location of publisher, name of publisher, date of publication, and a helpful summary of the contents. In addition to the bibliography, this work provides lists of resources for: archival, genealogical and oral history organizations; archival, family history, and genealogy publishers; archival and genealogical supply sources; photograph copying and restoration services; scrapbooking resources; archives, genealogical societies, libraries, and vital records; archives of general interest; genealogy/oral history websites; preservation, family albums, and scrapbooking; genealogical software; microforms and miscellaneous information sources; genealogical services; form services; and archives and genealogical listservs. The author offers tips for oral history and genealogy.
