One-Place Studies - Tracing the History of a Community
"The people, the streets, the churches, the workplaces, the shops and the public buildings – there are so many aspects to explore in a village to uncover its fascinating history. The village detective, Kirsty Gray, documents the sources available to trace the history of villages, with particular reference to her own one-place studies in southern England, and how genealogical/historical records can be used to build up a comprehensive picture of a community from the 18th to the 21st century."

Step-by-Step - Finding Confederate Soldiers and Their Records
"Using a record-based approach, learn to find the basic records of your Confederate Ancestor. A review of basic military records will be presented by following a solider throughout all available records, including Pensions (online and textual) and alternates: local civil records, Fraternal Organizations, state agency records, home guard and militia records, manuscripts, and newspaper accounts."
