Author Val Greenwood is sometimes thought of as the “dean of American genealogists” The reason why, of course, is his book, The Researcher’s Guide to American Genealogy. 4th edition. First published in 1973 and updated in 2017, The Researcher’s Guide was not only the first comprehensive textbook on its subject, it has also been the book of choice for genealogy classes for more than two generations. We dare say that no other book in American genealogy has been as influential.
We asked Mr. Greenwood to explain to participants at RootsTech Connect how The Researcher’s Guide came into being and why it is still relevant. If you did not catch Val’s presentation between February 24th and 27th, not to worry. You can watch it today—or at your convenience—below.
