Who Do You Think You Are? Library Resources in Genealogy.
Smith, Jeanette, Comp.
Conducting research in the field of genealogy requires the use of many different historical and recent materials in libraries and elsewhere. This guide provides an annotated bibliography of useful library tools, a basic strategy for research, and a list of other sources of information to help trace a family tree. Although comprehensive, this bibliography is by no means an exhaustive list of genealogical sources; rather, it is meant as an introduction to categories of materials. The following types of sources are included in the bibliography: handbooks and guides (17 titles); dictionaries (8 titles); indexes (10 titles); directories (16 titles); bibliographies (21 titles); newspapers and newspaper indexes (6 titles); census records (8 titles); military records (6 titles); church and cemetery records (2 titles); land records (2 titles); periodicals (13 titles); history and family histories (3 titles); agencies (9 titles); and other sources of information (13 titles).
