about

Many genealogists have likely tried to find family infor-mation on the World Wide Web. The Internet has become an increasingly popular place to do research-not only for serious genealogists and local historians but for everyday computer users interested in tracing their family histories. The growing availability of full-text books and journals on the Internet has made vast amounts of valuable genealogical information available at the touch of a button.

And, now there is an easy way to locate the most useful texts on the web! The Genealogist's Virtual Library is an outstanding new volume that offers a comprehensive bibliog-raphy of full-text books and journals. The Genealogist's Virtual Library directs you to the sites on the web that contain the full-text of books; these sites contain complete texts of books, not just synopses or listings. It identifies thousands of family genealogies, biographies, and local histories. The Virtual Library provides an extensive listing of these sources for genealogical research and is the first volume to give this helpful, time-saving information.

The Genealogist's Virtual Library allows you to see what is available for specific areas of interest and to browse other topics. This new volume is a 'Books in Print' of full-text genealogy books available free of charge on the Internet.

Thomas Jay Kemp is chair of the Genealogy Committee of the American LIbrary Association.
