Book Review: Genealogy Basics In 30 Minutes by Shannon Combs-Bennett

Genealogy Basics In 30 Minutes by Shannon Combs-Bennett

Genealogy Basics In 30 Minutes by Shannon Combs-Bennett is a quick little book, loaded with helpful information for someone looking to get started on their family history adventure.

How to name your files consistently and organize your records; how to tame the paper monster; citing your sources; what to pack in your genealogy road trip kit, and the importance of answering for our children the questions that we can no longer ask of our forefathers…all this and more are found in this book.

For a beginner, it is a good starting point. For the experienced genealogist, it is a good reminder of what we should be doing along the way to make things easier for future family researchers, and for ourselves as we get older.

It took me a bit longer than 30 minutes to read, but I tend to slow down and take my time with anything genealogy-related. Genealogy Basics In 30 Minutes is worth the time spent to read it.
