52 Weeks of Abundant Genealogy - Follow Friday - Week 27

52 Weeks of Abundant Genealogy - Follow Friday - Week 27

If I understand what Amy Coffin is suggesting in her 2012 52 Weeks of Abundant Genealogy, I believe I can follow these prompts and use them much as I have been posting of Fridays, the past years. Let's give it a try.

Week 27: Genealogy Publications. Genealogy publications are great for education and entertainment. Which one is your favorite? Who is the publisher? Why do you like this publication? How has it enhanced your own family history experience? Share any details you want potential readers to know about including features, articles, style, etc.

This week’s prompt runs from Sunday, July 1 through Saturday, July 7, 2012.

I'm going to mention "most likely" the first genealogy book my wife and I bought when we decided to 'get serious' about our genealogy research - it is copyright 1989!

Unpuzzling Your Past: A Basic Guide to Genealogy, Second Edition, by Emily Anne Croom, Better Way Books.

We still refer to it, from time to time, as recently as last week, when I wanted to see a 'form' I knew is always there for reference. We now have literally hundreds of genealogy related books on our shelves, but this is "old reliable!"

You asked, that is my answer!  ;-) Thanks, Emily! ;-)

Families are Forever!  ;-)

  1. I love the title of this book. I haven't seen it, but will look for it the next time I'm at the library. It sounds like an oldy but a goody.
