There are many approaches to tracing family lineage—particularly in the era of home DNA kits and genealogical search forums. Resler offers guidance to those looking to learn more about their roots, beginning with the basics and framing the quest for family history as a mystery to solve, with readers as the detectives. Resler includes charts that focus on research techniques, finding helpful resources, documenting and citing evidence, and determining reliability of information. Sections titled “Case Files” feature historical perspectives on periods of American immigration that give readers a broad perspective on the diverse genetic makeup of the country. Sidebars provide links to online archives, databases, and directories and sections are devoted to helping readers overcome “Research Roadblocks.” Resler introduces a host of research skills for use in genealogical searches and beyond. Ages 8–12. (Apr.)
