“Genealogy At A Glance Quicksheets,” published by Genealogical Publishing Company, provide basic information about different aspects of research for the beginner as well as the advanced researcher.
Each guide, created by nationally known genealogy experts, takes a large subject and narrows it down to essential elements on four laminated 8.5-by-11-inch pages.
All guides include an overview of the contents and quick facts about the topic. The guide provides suggestions on where to start, types of available records, resources, known societies, location of research collections, books and online resources.
For example: Guides for English, Italian, French, Polish research provides emigration/immigration information, ports of department and arrival, basic record resources, parish registers, Diocesan records, probate and census records. In addition, printed sources, and online major resources are provided.
Guides for Civil War and Revolutionary War ancestors includes information on where to start the research process, where to find and how to use major record resources, and information about muster rolls, settlement accounts, bounty land and loyalist records.
