This book is a guide to descendant searching - that is looking for living relatives who are also descendants of our ancestors. It can be fascinating, rewarding, and potentially life-changing. Research can lead you not to dead ancestors, but to living, breathing relatives who share your genetic heritage - members of your extended family.

Descendant searching involves using many of the same research methods as traditional family history  research to bring a search forward in time rather than working backwards chronologically. Working from a chosen ancestor or family, a researcher can trace living descendants from the same family, and link up to share information.

 - Shows you how to get started
 - Offers tips and guidance using the major sources for family history
