What do you do when you hit the proverbial brick wall? Try gleaning advice from literary sleuths like Miss Marple, Sherlock Holmes, and Hercule Poirot. That's what expert genealogist Emily Croom helps you do in The Sleuth Book for Genealogists, which blends literary methods of deduction with genealogical expertise.

Using the sleuths' acknowledged expertise in the deduction arts, The Sleuth Book will invigorate your genealogical research, helping you to

  • Determine your research goal
  • Organize what you know
  • Practice "cluster genealogy" research
  • Document your research
  • Decide whether you've answered your research questions.
Case studies and research examples throughout the book--including case studies of an Illinois Civil War Veteran, a former Mississippi slave, and a Tennessee farm wife, among others--illustrate genealogical sleuths in action, taking you step by step through the process of solving frustrating research problems. Appendixes include an introduction to genealogy fundamentals and a practical, detailed guide to citing your sources.

"A must read and use book. The Sleuth Book for Genealogists will not only keep you entertained while you're learning how to break through those stubborn brick walls, but it will also give you practical advice that really works"--Sharon DeBartolo Carmack, CG, author of You Can Write Your Family History.
