Volume 1 has lots of useful tips and websites especially for North America. This Volume II is the more useful in my opinion as it focusses on improved searching techniques. Specific chapters include using Google Tools, FamilySearch, City Directories, digitised books, Pinterest and church records. It also includes migration, women in war and women in trouble. I'm quite excited to put many of these techniques into practice. Well worth the money!
