Who’s Your Daddy? Preface
Who’s Your Daddy? is a basic guide for the “rest of us,” those who are more interested in learning about their heritage than about creating a philosophical tome, which no one will ever read, or a “book of begats” designed to impress the reader.
Who’s Your Daddy? encourages you to have fun with your new hobby while reminding you to follow the rules of recording sources so you don’t wind up with egg on your face.
Who’s Your Daddy? shows you how to research at home, on the Internet, in county court houses, in libraries, in cemeteries, in church records, and–best of all, on the road to visit the places where your ancestors lived, loved, and died.
Who’s Your Daddy? explores basic rules of genealogical evidence, evaluation of source materials, research methods, and includes extensive guidance on Web-based research and DNA study. Plenty of “True Story” examples and clear illustrations are included to show you the way. Who’s Your Daddy? covers WHY you should do the work, HOW you can research and write the stories, WHEN to stop and publish to share it.
