International Genealogy and Local History : Papers presented by the Genealogy and Local History Section
by Ruth Hedegaard & Elizabeth Anne Melrose (Eds.)
Series: IFLA Publications Series 130
This book contains the papers delivered at sessions organised by the Genealogy and Local History Section at the annual conferences of the International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions (IFLA) between 2001 and 2005; many of these are updated versions of the original presentations.
A wide range of significant issues and trends in historical and family research is covered. The authors, all experts in their own fields, address those engaged in delivering genealogy and local history services in libraries, archives and museums across the world. Moreover they focus on the growing army of enthusiasts directly engaged in tracing their own ancestral and local history.
Several papers give useful hints on how various resources can be used to further personal research. These include the exciting opportunities offered by the digitisation of primary resources and by the impact of the powerful new technology, among other things now on offer through DNA profiling.
