The Free "Encyclopedia of Genealogy" Reference Guide and Research Aid

+11 votes

In an earlier post we discussed Brick Wall Solutions and glossaries of genealogical terms. An addendum to that post included a link to a WikiTree Glossary which covers terms all new contributor/volunteers will need familiarity with on this site.

Let's look now at a site titled the Encyclopedia of Genealogy, which is sponsored by Eastman's Online, a daily genealogy newsletter that shares helpful articles on timely industry related topics.

The Encyclopedia of Genealogy, like WikiTree (yet not associated), is written and updated by genealogists and family historians from the worldwide genealogy community. Consider it a genealogy reference manual and a supplement to WikiTree which includes a glossary of genealogical terms and ways to research your immigrant ancestors. It covers obsolete medical and legal terms, how to find the people in your family tree and where to locate the needed records on them. 

The Encyclopedia of Genealogy is another tool to place on the wall in front of your figurative workbench, much like Kitty's Library (a comprehensive reference guide) here on WikiTree, you will not find your ancestors listed there, but it will help you find them quicker.
