By January 16, 2021News

We have received several reviews of the revised edition of Shannon Combs-Bennett’s Genealogy Basics In 30 Minutes. The reviews are from NetGalley, a service that connects publishers and reviewers, including librarians, teachers, and bloggers. Here’s what people are saying:

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

“Genealogy Basics In 30 Minutes delivers on its premise – it’s an excellent practical overview of techniques and sources for tracing one’s family tree. While primarily aimed at beginners or those who’ve only made sporadic exploration into their family history, Shannon Combs-Bennett provides a robust foundation upon which to launch more intensive investigations.

Genealogy Basics In 30 Minutes explores topics including how to start a family history exploration, maintaining organised records and the growth industry of genetic genealogy.

Despite being only a slight volume at 102 pages, the book contains comprehensive contents and index and links to online resources.

Shannon Combs-Bennett is highly qualified in her field, and this volume is a great starting point for those who have an interest in researching their family history, or who wish to improve or update their skills. Highly recommended.”

“I have been working on my ancestry chart for several years, but found some ideas and tips that will help me! For someone just beginning Shannon Combs-Bennett provides help in how to organize and back up your finds. I wish I had read this years ago!

I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley for my voluntary, honest review.”
