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 records and indexes online it is, however, becoming easier and quicker if you know where to look.

This second, revised and updated edition of '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 and where to obtain discounts, what sites are free, how to plan and organise your research, making the most of Google, and using social media for family history research.

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

This edition of '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.
