Also contains an alphabetical category list and tutorials, guides, and tips for finding people. Howell is the author of Netting Your Ancestors. Annotation c.

Library Journal Review

Banking on the success of the first print edition (LJ 9/1/99), author and webmaster Howells returns with a substantially expanded print version of her popular web site (www.cyndislist.com). Two volumes now accommodate the 30,000 additional sites and more than 150 categories of all things genealogical, including "Genealogy Standards & Guidelines," "Poorhouses & Poverty," and "Web Rings." Each category organizes its related links into subcategories, with many of the links followed by brief annotations. Readers will find links to topics as diverse as the Bulgarian royal family, Pennsylvania land records, and Dutch immigrant ships to Canada. As with the first edition, the "Personal Home Pages" category has been omitted and the "U.S. Counties, Localities and Regions" sections were condensed to save space. Obviously, the online version is and always will be more complete and current (at this writing it tops 100,000 links), but for beginning researchers or for those who prefer to browse the list at their leisure, this work serves as an excellent reference tool. Recommended for genealogy collections. Elaine M. Kuhn, Allen Cty. P.L., Ft. Wayne, IN (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
