The Genealogist's Address Book is the answer to the perennial question, "What's out there in the world of genealogy?" What organizations, institutions, special resources, and websites can help me? Where do I write or phone or send e-mail? Once again, Elizabeth Bentley's Address Book answers these questions and more.
Now in its 6th edition, The Genealogist's Address Book gives you access to all the key sources of genealogical information, providing names, addresses, phone numbers, fax numbers, e-mail addresses, websites, names of contact persons, and other pertinent information for more than 27,000 organizations, including libraries, archives, societies, government agencies, vital records offices, professional bodies, publications, research centers, and special interest groups.
Based on a written survey of thousands of organizations and institutions across the country, and supplemented by information from printed and Internet sources, the new 6th edition of the Address Book has been extensively revised and updated, eliminating undeliverable addresses and defunct organizations, while adding thousands of additional sources. Besides new websites and e-mail addresses, the new edition features greatly expanded coverage of archival agencies and vital records offices, especially in the New England states and New York. In addition, it is now easier to use than ever, with all 27,000 entries divided into two easy-to-use sections.
The Address Book is the only comprehensive list of genealogical and historical resources available; the only book that places an exhaustive list of genealogy organizations at your fingertips, reducing searching to a matter of seconds. Since its first appearance in 1991, it has established itself as the most frequently consulted book on the genealogist's reference shelf--the one research tool that almost everybody uses. Through six editions it has proved itself indispensable for beginners and professionals alike, and if you own any of the previous editions, you'll certainly want to own this one.
