500 Best Genealogy and Family History Tips

500 Best Genealogy and Family History Tips

Ref: UTP0425

'500 Best Genealogy and Family History Tips' could be be described as a 'brain dump' of me, Thomas MacEntee, and my many years of knowledge about genealogy and family history.

Basically what I've done is to extract my favourite tips and tricks from over 85 presentations, 10 books and numerous articles. In addition, I've reviewed the social media posts and conversations from Facebook, Twitter and other platforms to highlight those issues most important to today's genealogists.

What will you find in this 'best tips' guide? Everything from practical ways to use Google, advice on protecting your privacy online, information about secret or little known resources for genealogy research and more. The best way to use this guide is to browse the table of contents to find a topic of interest. Also simply search the book when trying to find a solution to a problem, such as how to cite a source or locate an app to generate bibliographic information.

'500 Best Genealogy and Family History Tips' covers a wide range of topics including:
- genealogy research methodology and strategy
- how to use websites such as Google and Internet Archive to find your ancestors
- realising the power of Facebook, Evernote and Pinterest for genealogy
- preservng family photos and stories
- staying safe using social media
- how to secure your genealogy data on your computer in the cloud
- and more!!

Comment by My History; this book is by an American author and there are inevitably a few references that pertain mainly to the North American continent. However the book is quite international with many of its tips and is no less useful to readers from other parts of the World especially where references are made to the many internet services that cross international boundaries.
