Description
 
This booklet is arranged in three parts. The first is designed to address the need for a family history researcher to be organised and covers subjects such as using appropriate instruments to support the compilation of records, preserving photographs and documents. The second section addresses the access of South Australian repositories. The final part addresses some of the issues family history researchers commonly encounter.

Written specifically as course notes for lectures that Graham Jaunay (a South Australian professional genealogist) gives. While not going into everything in depth, this book does give a good overview of the basics of family history research.
