Description
 
This book, first published in 1981 as the title 'Family History for Beginners', has now been updated, expanded and released in its fourteenth edition. The concept arose out of notes to accompany lectures at Beginners Courses run by the Heraldry and Genealogy Society of Canberra. The Council of the Society considers that what has evolved warrants a place among the more comprehensive manuals for Australians, one which goes 'beyond' the needs of beginners.

Designed to accompany you from the beginning - from the initial desire to trace your family lines, through the necessary stages to complete a 'tree'. It will not solve all your problems, no one book could do that, but it will set you on the right path, offering inspiration and techniques to help you on your journey.

Covering all of the basics, as well as providing further information by listing books, web sites, and records at the Latter Day Saints Family History Centres - this is a useful guide for Australian's beginning their family search.
