Library Journal Review

Baxter provides a great deal of useful information concerning genealogical sources located in 31 continental European nations. (For Ireland and Great Britain, see his earlier work, In Search of Your British and Irish Roots ). Names of officials and agencies and addresses of archives and record centers are listed, and a recommended procedure for both approach and access is given for each. Areas of greatest strength are nations in Western Europe. Difficult areas, i.e., the USSR, Turkey, and Bulgaria, remain difficult, but Baxter's thorough treatment does provide some hope. Included are worthwhile sections on tracing Jewish ancestry and accessing Mormon records and a solid list of genealogical organizations. Highly recommended for public and academic libraries.
