Since 1984, The Source has set the standard for family history references, winning the ALA "Best Reference" award and earning the top spot on Family Chronicle's "Top 10 Genealogical Books" list. This new third revised addition has four new chapters with an additional 150 pages.

Edited by Loretto Dennis "Lou" Szucs and Sandra Hargreaves Luebking, two of the most well-respected leaders in the field of family history.

Each chapter in this new edition is a mini seminar written by an expert in a specific genealogical field that shows what sources are available, how to find them, and most importantly, how to use them.

The Internet has changed the genealogical landscape in the ten years since The Source's last revision. The many contributors to this volume explore these new online sources and place them in context with timeless family history research principles.

There are comprehensive chapters on the following:

  1. Foundations (gives an overview of how to do family history research)
  2. Immigration Research
  3. Census Research
  4. Military Records
  5. Church Records
  6. African American Research
  7. Jewish Research
  8. Computer Research
  9. The American Colonial Era
  10. References and Guides, and more.


"The third edition of The Source reflects the dynamic development of genealogical research in the past decade. The distinguished editors have provided an updated arrangement with expanded topics and additional content. The final product is even more user-friendly than earlier editions. This standard reference work should be on every researcher's must-have list."
