This gift idea is a fund raiser for a group called DeadFred.com. DeadFred is a free site that is accessible to the genealogist or historian anytime when they are wanting to return orphaned photos or are trying to track down images of their own long-lost relatives.
In order to support the operating costs of DeadFred some of the top ancestral sleuths wrote a great book entitled The Desperate Genealogist’s Idea Book: Creative Ways to Outsmart Your Elusive Ancestors.
This 150-page e-book is packed with articles and case studies that reveal invaluable tips, shortcuts, resources and even step-by-step instructions on how to use overlooked research tools, conduct specialized searches and tackle family tree brick walls with sheer ingenuity. The cost of this e-book is a very reasonable $14.95 USD. Click here to order.
