Description
 
Genealogy is one of Australia’s leading hobbies but it can be expensive and time consuming looking for family history information. With the growth of the internet and more information online it is, however, becoming easier and quicker if you know where to look.

'Family History on the Cheap' examines a broad range of topics including family sources, whether someone has already researched the family, when to use professional researchers, how to obtain discounts, what sites are free, how to plan and organize your research and how to maximise research results from your trips to archives and libraries.

Finding births, marriages and deaths are the cornerstones of family history research and this publication looks at various ways of discovering this information in a wide variety of sources such as wills and probate records, cemetery records, newspapers and so on without spending money.

'Family History on the Cheap' highlights numerous tips and tricks for how to get the most from research trips to archives, libraries , family history and local historical societies, visits to relatives, social networking sites, commercial websites and of course, Google. You will quickly recoup its purchase price many times over with the money and time savings outlined throughout the book.

Being an Australian published book, many of the examples and places mentioned throughout the book are Australian related, but the concepts apply to those researching anywhere worldwide.
