For anyone interested in finding their family roots in Northeast Ohio, this book combines practical how-to (and where to) instructions with inspirational family history success stories. Genealogy--family history research--is a fast-growing hobby. But it can be difficult to start. Official records are scattered in so many places, and each archive seems to have its own way of doing things. Where to begin? Vicki Blum Vigil, author of Cleveland Cemeteries and an experience researcher, knows her way around the most useful facilities (archives, libraries, churches, cemeteries, courts, and more) in this region. Her new book helps newcomers to genealogy (or to Northeast Ohio) figure out which places to look in and how best to use them. She also shares some personal success stories of fellow Clevelanders who have discovered really interesting things about their ancestors--they make for great how-to examples and fun reading, too!
