Genealogy HowTo - ShortCuts to Googling Success in Genealogy
by Cindy Carman
My husband says that he could search Google all day and not find the information he wants, but that I can search for 10 minutes and voila there is the page with the exact information for which he was searching. Here are the most successful shortcuts which I use in my Genealogy Google searches.
Ask Us - Canadian Genealogy Online - Part 9 - Prince Edward Island Research Resources
Part 1 of Canadian Genealogy Online contained a general overview of how to research your Canadian ancestors and gave several links to online records. It included a description of when Censuses began
to be recorded for each of the Canadian provinces and links to the online Canadian Census images and name indexes. Part 2 and Part 3 explored online resources for genealogical research in Alberta and British Columbia and Part 4, 5, 6, and 7 listed resources for Manitoba, New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador Research, and Nova Scotia Resources. Part 8 focused on Ontario online resources.
Today we will look at Prince Edward Island online resources for genealogical research.
Research resources for other provinces will be presented in future newsletters.

Reviews - The Family Tree Guidebook to Europe
by Allison Dolan and the Editors of "Family Tree Magazine"
reviewed by Cindy Carman
Family Tree Magazine scores another win with its updated version of "The Family Tree Guidebook to Europe". I liked the older version so well that I thought this one couldn't beat it. I reviewed the older version in the April 2004 issue of the MyTrees.com newsletter. Comparing the two books I was pleasantly surprised to find that the new version was not just a rewrite of the older version. Though there were a couple of chapters that were close to being the same, there were significant additions to the newest version. For instance, the addition of new research tips and many more references to web sites that can make your genealogical searching successful.
