Simon and Schuster Very few books on this one subject; fills a missing need for budding DIY genealogists!
This volume in Cold Spring Press's new "Quillen's Essentials of Genealogy" gets to the heart of what genealogical research is for most Americans: hitting the shores of the Atlantic Ocean looking east to the UK, Ireland, and Europe as they begin their search for their ancestors. Largely a nation populated by European immigrants from the 17th through early 20th centuries, immigration and naturalization records is often just the source needed to locate important genealogical information. "Mastering Immigration & Naturalization Records" will cover the following topics: -- What are Immigration Records?; -- What is the genealogical value of Immigration Records?; -- Where do I find Immigration Records?; -- How to locate Naturalization Records; -- Genealogical value of naturalization records.
