Others outline strategies for organizing research and making use of the Internet and other technology. For experienced genealogists there is detailed information on legal, military, professional-association, and property records. There is extensive information regarding Church of England parish registers, as well as information for tracing Catholic, Jewish, and other nonconformist records. The book is further enhanced by almost 100 illustrations of various records, wills, gravestones, and family photographs."--"Outstanding Reference Sources : the 1999 Selection of New Title", American Libraries, May 1999.
