For years, genealogists have heard that they need to “be more like Sherlock Holmes.” What does that mean? In The Sleuth Book for Genealogists, experienced genealogist and author Emily Croom combines her expertise with that of literary sleuths such as Sherlock Holmes, Miss Marple, and Hercule Poirot for a unique look at genealogy research and problem-solving. Case studies and research examples throughout the book illustrate genealogists in action while the literary sleuths are present to encourage, cheer, warn, and advise. Chapter-length case studies describe successful research on an Illinois Civil War soldier, a Mississippi former slave, and a Tennessee-Louisiana farm family. Readers find the book stimulating, motivating, and highly entertaining.
