Hi, I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. You are right Anne that geneaology is important to us. ;-)) Anyone can go to familysearch.org and find tons of resources for doing geneaological work. There are getting started guides and advanced guides as well. It is all free. -------------------------------------------------- From: "Ann Parsons" <akp@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx> Sent: Wednesday, July 01, 2009 2:29 PM To: <bksvol-discuss@xxxxxxxxxxxxx> Subject: [bksvol-discuss] Re: anyone know of any books in our collection onhowto do genealogy and family history research? Hi all, Sorry, I couldn't find anything on Geneology for Bookshare, but I may be looking in the wrong places. I went to Google and found a ton of stuff. Have any friends who are members of the LDS church? Ask them. They have some of the best geneology stuff in the world. It's important to them. Has to do with their religion I guess. Me, I don't understand it. I'm Catholic, so have only the vaguest understanding. I do know, though, that those are the people to ask if you're looking for geneological data. Ann P.
