New Computer

My new computer has arrived. I hope to get it set up today and then I can install Legacy and really get started on family history work (as I have time, of course).

I am excited to start a new adventure of research and compiling what I have.

Genealogy 101 by Barbara Renick

Yesterday I received a new book in the mail. It is Genealogy 101 - How to Trace Your Family's History and Heritage by Barbara Renick. It is published by Rutledge Hill Press in Nashville, Tennessee, copyright 2003 by National Genealogical Society and Barbara Renick.

I attended two classes by Barbara Renick at the BYU Family History Conference and also heard her when she was a guest on Relatively Speaking on KSL Radio. If I lived in southern California I might take a class from her at the Orange County LDS Family History Center. I am excited to read this book. She has included many personal examples of research done by herself in the book and it appears to be a comprehensive guide to the task of discovering your family tree.

Actually this book is now out-of-print, but I was able to purchase a copy on eBay (actually It appears to be a brand new copy.
