I would strongly recommend it for anyone who is not too far into genealogical data collection but is past the total beginner stage.
You should be able to do basic online and records searches. The book takes you to the next level. Apr 18, Christine rated it it was amazing.

I took detailed notes, and plan to use it like my bible in breaking down some of my brick walls. I think a copy belongs in every family history library. Sep 18, Cathy rated it really liked it. Helped reassure me that I'm not a complete idiot since I am already doing some of the things suggested here, but did learn a few things as well. Wish I could find a book like this that was more British-centered.
Almost all the specific examples were for US research. May 02, Carrie Portlance rated it it was ok. I was expecting a lot more from this book. I would not call it advanced. I would call this a book for an intermediate researcher. I was hoping to get some ideas but this book really didn't give me any new ones. Oct 23, Nick rated it really liked it.
