This convenient, time-saving collection of genealogy info gathers the best resources, tips, lists, and need-to-know facts, all curated by the experts at Family Tree Magazine. This travel-sized book contains easy-to-access details about a variety of family history topics, from important dates in US history to the different kinds of DNA tests and hacks for using the best genealogy websites. SELLING POINTS: * Genealogy websites continue to grow more popular, but the size and scope of these websites make it difficult for users to access key information amidst all the data. This book consolidates the most important genealogical information so researchers can use these websites (and other resources) more effectively. * Highly marketed consumer DNA tests are attracting millions of new consumers to the genealogy market, and many of these individuals don't have a solid understanding of genealogy's basics. A general-reference book like this will give these new genealogists the tools they need to take their first steps into the hobby. * This book's trim size makes it easy to carry while traveling or doing on-site research, giving it more utility than its large and heavy competitors. 30 b/w illustrations
