Synopsis: Discover the secrets to Ancestry.com success! This book will help you get the most out of your Ancestry.com subscription by showing you how to take advantage of what the world’s biggest genealogy website has to offer–and how to find answers to your family tree questions within its billions of records and massive network of family trees. This newly updated guide reflects the site’s many changes, with screenshots that demonstrate how to create family trees, navigate the site, and use Ancestry.com’s search engines. A new section on AncestryDNA will also help you dive deeper into your research, with detailed guides to interpreting test results and applying them to research.
My review: This is a really thorough book on using the Ancestry website and covers just about everything you can think of when setting up your ancestry account and searching your family history. I was a bit worried at first how relevant it would be being the US website when I use the UK one but the information carries across well no matter what country you are based in.
I’ve done a fair bit on my tree already and done workshops with my local library so there was quite a bit I already knew however for complete beginners it’s excellent. However even for those with experience there are still some little bits of extra knowledge you can pick up. It is a book that you can read cover to cover or simply dip into to find a particular piece of information.
Really interesting and informative for anyone interested in genealogy
