Disclaimer: A pdf version was provided at no charge for the purpose of this review

New to the genealogy book market is Research Like a Pro: A Genealogist's Guide by Diana Elder, AG with Nicole Dyer.

Based on successful "Research Like a Pro" classes and blog posts, this step by step approach will lead the reader through a research project large or small and can be used by those with all levels of genealogical research experience.

Beginning with an explanation of how to use the book, the following chapters lead the researcher through the process:
Chapter 1-Research Objectives
Chapter 2-Analyze Your Sources
Chapter 3-Locality Research
Chapter 4-Research Planning
Chapter 5-Source Citations
Chapter 6-Research Logs
Chapter 7-Report Writing
Chapter 8-What's Next for the Researcher?

This book is so much more than just a well-written explanation of basic research methodology. After a detail explanation of the methodology introduced in the chapter, a task is given to the reader to help put each into practice. There is an appendix with templates of the forms used in each chapter and real work samples that show "how to" use each technique.

If you are looking for a way to strengthen your research skills and learn to "Research Like a Pro" this is the book for you!

Research Like a Pro: A Genealogist's Guide is available in print or ebook on amazon.com
