This book is particularly good for information regarding UK genealogy websites.Geographical information about the UK is always very helpful.Lots of info on maps and place names. Interesting chapter on search engines, which describes some advanced searching tips. Also info on libraries and archives in the UK, including local libraries, which some researchers often give a miss. Generally, good internet genealogy tips.
