    This book is great for what it was designed for, to use as a reference while navigating Ancestry.com I did read some entire chapters and others I only skimmed as they are not relevant to any of my current genealogy search questions I m glad I have this reference if ever I need it The writing is clear and the suggested steps are easy to follow The lone detractor from the book is that Ancestry has already updated many of the layouts presented in the visual reference boxes so things look different on our screens now I found it a bit confusing at times I ve decided I probably should not hold this author accountable as it was out of her hands when updates occur, therefore I did not subtract any stars.Bottom line ok reference book for those like me who sometimes find learning easier with reading about something in detail before trying.

    More Windows and doorsI was little overwhelmed by new info on how to do a search and theses processes had were evolving just my skills in genealogy research are evolving Just the resources 35 yrs ago were books on the shelf now access now is much easier, limited by only not knowing the records exist and bureaucracy of getting to the records There is SO much I have to do to make sure my children know their ancestors and are proud of those ancestors AND be glad I was ablearchive what have and that complete info was findable I will re read this book many times in my continuing genealogy and my old hard copies There is always something learn in something you ve already read.Don t give up, on your search for family , because there, is really a forest we have to navigate from roots to sprouts We have to adapt how we do things Otherwise we won t grow Get the book, read it get busy.

    I received an ARC from NetGalley on this book I was excited to read it because I have been working on my family tree for months Typical for me, I read no directions before starting in just winged it so it was nice now to have some input from someone who actually knows what they are doing on the thing I learned some slick new tips as well as what I was doing right on the site The book covers things like how to read birth and death records, looking at voter records and newspapers, as well as understanding DNA results if you also submit that to go with your tree There are parts that might be overwhelming for a newbie even I didn t understand a couple sections but it gives a great overview so people can use it as a guide in reference to whatever stage they are in Great genealogy book.

    Ancestry is an amazing site I ve been exploring it for about three years now and am nowhere near covering all I want This book i a Godsend I had no idea all the stuff in the book was on I ve been searching randomly and this book certainly gives me some organized means of sorting through all the data Ancestry offers Anyone who is interested in searching for ancestors will benefit from using this book It contains lots of useful info to guide users through the site Very well researched and organized I received a Kindle ARC from Netgalley in exchange for a fair review.

    I believe this book would be valuable to someone just starting their genealogy journey so they get a good overview of what Ancestry can offer them The step by step instructions are clear and concise to help someone navigate searches Nancy does not seek to put down any other sites and say Ancestry.com is better, she merely provides what the book set out to do teach the user about Ancestry.com You can read my full review at this is the first review I have done of a book since highschool

    A great reference book for Ancestry.com research Starts out with the basics, then delves deep into the mysteries of researching your ancestors I have been using Ancestry for over ten years now, and I still found so many new ideas and techniques to use I especially appreciated the chapters on DNA I took a DNA test through Ancestry, and now I have a whole slate of new possibilities to research and explore A definite addition to my library that I will refer to again and again

    I had subscribed to Ancestry many times so did not expect anything new I was surprised that things have changed since the last time I subscribed Even though you have to pay to get on and get too much information you can still look up and see if there is anything on a family member This gives you the information from someone other than Ancestry Would recommend it to help you get around the website.
