I remember when first beginning my family history when everything was confusing and I wasn't really sure if I was missing some genealogical source or information. Without a good, high quality family history book I would have been lost. These books can be used as either a way to teach you the skills needed or as a handy reference once you learn more about genealogy. Whether you are a beginner at family history research or whether you are a professional genealogist there is always something new to learn! Books about genealogy are a great way of keeping your knowledge fresh and learning those additional ways to get the most from your hobby.
