Finding Your Family History in Northeast Ohio
By Vicki Blum Vigil
Possibly one of the fastest growing pastimes is the search for one's family roots, otherwise known as Genealogy. It is a challenging, life-long hobby, not for those interested in immediate results or a finished product.
Vicki Blum Vigil helps streamline the process and helps you avoid some of the pitfalls that all family researchers come across. She is an accomplished researcher herself and as such is very familiar with the best places to acquire trust-worthy information.
She will not only help you access information sources, like the Census Bureau, but she takes you through the steps needed to decipher the information they contain. Information is listed as to where you can find information, what you can expect to find and how to go about getting it.
There is a deluge of information on the internet for people looking for their ancestors. This book helps narrow the field to information that is helpful and practical for anyone with roots in Northeast Ohio.
I've done a lot of research on my family tree and I was amazed at all of the tips and pointers I picked up from this book. I thought I had exhausted all of the Ohio sources, but I haven't even come close.
If you're looking for your Ohio roots, this book is a must read.
