Genealogy and Computers for the Determined Researcher is the dynamic sequel to Karen Clifford's popular introductory guidebook, Genealogy and Computers for the Complete Beginner.
One of the most important features of Genealogy and Computers for the Determined Researcher is its series of seventeen PAF tutorials that are designed to train you to get the most out of your computer as a research tool. After you ve mastered the tutorials, you ll understand why thousands of genealogists have come to depend on PAF to assemble and manage their findings. Accompanying the book itself is a floppy disk for your use in completing the tutorials. Other sections of the Determined Researcher go over a variety of genealogical source records not covered in the Complete Beginner, including land, probate, military, and emigration/immigration records, as well as records found in periodicals and newspapers. Twenty percent larger than the previous edition, Genealogy and Computers for the Determined Researcher now features new or expanded coverage of pre-1850 U.S. census records, Native American genealogy, migration patterns, and the genealogical impact of customs.
