In Genealogy Online, Elizabeth Powell Crowe presents modern-age genealogy tips, tricks, and resources to the family historian. Be aware that Crowe focuses on genealogists who wish to learn how to use computer resources rather than on computer users who wish to learn how to do genealogy. She spends a fair amount of time discussing cyberspace basics--what the Internet is, how to use modems, netiquette, and choosing an ISP. Crowe then gives examples of the help that can be found on ROOTS-L and other mailing lists, the Web, and various bulletin board systems. The Web section alone offers connections to 50 of the most helpful research sites. Although she discusses at length such invaluable services as the National Genealogical Society BBS, online library card catalogs, and a number of genealogical databases, she doesn't overlook one of the researcher's most valuable resources--other researchers. Crowe guides the reader to a number of places where genealogists exchange tips and discoveries, including numerous newsgroups and genealogical forums on the various online services.
