Janice Lindgren Schultz had a distinguished career at one of the most well-known genealogical libraries in the United States. Her years at the Midwest Genealogy Center in Independence, Kansas, more than prepared her to write Helping Patrons Find Their Roots: A Genealogy Handbook for Librarians. Schultz focuses on all areas of genealogy research and her coverage is exhaustive. She begins with the purposes and methods of research, followed by a detailed consideration of all kinds of records useful to genealogists. She ably explains the importance of the proof and reliability of resources standards used by expert genealogists.
