Beverly Whitaker, Professional Genealogist

 

In the 21st century, persons wanting to learn about their family history usually turn first to the Internet where so many resources have become available. Too often, however, printed genealogical materials on our library bookshelves are being ignored. I challenge you to search out some of the volumes in this bibliography. And many more excellent titles have recently been published, just not yet cataloged on this site.

Ask your librarian about the books listed here, and share your personal "wish list" with friends and families to use for those gift-giving occasions. Begin your search for published records at your own home by checking online library catalogs and vendor booklists. In recent years, several libraries have begun to offer genealogy books in their circulating collections. Talk with your local librarian about how you can borrow genealogy books throughinterlibrary loan.

Over the past 30 years, I've been fortunate to have attended dozens of genealogical seminars and major conferences where I've eagerly visited the vendor displays. I use online library catalogs, and visit libraries every place I travel. I also read reviews of new books as they appear. As you've probably guessed, my own personal library expanded greatly. If I own a copy of a book in one of the booklists which follow, the title will appear in color, and you will recognize that it is one with which I am well acquainted.

And I talked the publisher into including 18 reproducible forms because at that time, forms were only available in packages from vendors.}
