I received your book on Monday. I could not wait to look at it. The
week has been busy so I have not read the whole book cover to cover
but I have skipped around and looked at various chapters.
I think your book is an outstanding effort documenting the unknown
power of Google. I like the way you have laid out the book for easy
reading and research. Large margins on the side of each page will make
it easy to leave personal notes. The screen shot examples are also
large and easy to understand.
As I was skipping around, I noticed on page 92 the word Campobasso,
very interesting that your great grandmother is from there. Neighbors
up the street that I have known since childhood have their last name
Campobasso. Anthony Campobasso is from the village Campobasso too. I
played with his three children growing up. He is I believe in his
I also read in your book that libraries might have access to
Ancestry.com. I checked my local library and they do, so I will check
it out. I did a search for an ancestor and got into Ancestry.com on my
pc at home and discovered public pictures. That opened another avenue
to explore and I found some pictures posted there that I have also of
my great grandfather and great grandmother. I also found others and
the identity of a mystery person on one of the photographs. Of course,
to get more information I have to be a member but the WOW factor
really got me excited and the urge to look further.
Your book exceeds my expectation of what I thought it would be. I am
going to use your book as a tool to discover what I do not know about
Google and genealogy. I know if I would have thumbed through the book
in a bookstore like Barnes and Noble I would have bought it immediately.
Many books on genealogy that I have looked at I close and abandon just
because of the way they are laid out and the author does not know how
to explain in easy to understand terms. I do know this book was laid
out with a lot of thought and it works for me. I am sure others will
think the same.
I did recommend to my library that they should get copies of your book.
I gave them all the information. So if you get a request from the
library from Dakota County, Minnesota, I initiated it.
Thank you Dan for taking the time to write "Google Your Family Tree"
and autographing my book. I know the book will be a big success.
