I've been "doing" genealogy for (eek!) almost 16 years, though only actively searching (on and off) for the past decade. Most "how to" genealogy guides focus exclusively on American records.

I've recently become interested in doing some research into my family history. Until a month ago, I didn't know the names of m great grandparents, much less any earlier ancestors. I decided I wanted to do some research and used this book as a means to that end.

Despite the grandiose title, it is a reasonable introduction into researching one's family tree It covers a fairly wide breadth though not too much in depth. Useful for beginners like me but probably not for anyone with any experience.
My mother-in-law gave me this book one year for Christmas, and I thought it was wonderful. It is a wonderful reference book for a genealogist, whether you're just starting out or whether you've been researching for years.

The book points you in the right direction on where to find certain types of records, not just US records, but UK and a number of other countries, as well.

An excellent resource for any genealogist!
It has a detailed, step by step approach to genealogy packed full of different resources, both internet and paper. It is also easy to read without a lot of technical jargon.
this is a great first resource to help understand the genealogy language. it is well organized and provides many tips and resources.
