A Student's Guide to Scandinavian American Genealogy by Lisa Olson Paddock, Carl Sokolnicki Rollyson

A guide to constructing a Scandinavian American family history utilizing library research.


?The authors are realistic about the research, cautioning readers about reluctant interviewees and the expense that might be incurred. The tone, however, remains enthusiastic in both....Extensive, annotated lists of resources appear at the end of each chapter, and include Internet Sites, computer programs, and addresses and phone numbers of related government agencies in the U.S. and abroad. Full-color and black-and-white photos lend an attractive touch. These books should be the first stop for students interested in tracing their roots for a school or family project, or for personal knowledge about their heritage.?-School Library Journal

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to
