So, guess what? I wrote a book! No, for real... I did!

A Genealogist's guide to Boston, Massachusetts is now on sale through AmazonCreatspace, and The In-Depth Genealogist.

"A Genealogist's Guide to Boston, Massachusetts" is a great resource for genealogists who plan on researching in this geographic area. Approximately 12 million people from all over the world visit Boston every year to take in its beautiful harbor, amazing history, museums, sporting events, and more. With its mixture of old buildings (some dating back to the 1600s), new skyscrapers, and everything in between, Boston truly is a meeting of past, present and future. 

Whether you are traveling alone, with an adult companion or with your children, you will find plenty to keep you entertained during your stay. Boston is home to well-known attractions such as the Museum of Science, New England Aquarium, Fenway Park and the Boston Duck Tours. History lovers and genealogists will want to visit Bunker Hill, the USS Constitution, Paul Revere's House, the Old Granary Burying Ground and other historical landmarks along the famed Freedom Trail. Of course, Boston is also home to the New England Historic Genealogical Society and other excellent research institutions. 

This guide will provide you with what you will need to know when planning a genealogy trip to Boston. We will look at repositories, libraries, historical societies, cemeteries, attractions, accommodations, and more in and around Boston.

While it includes a lot of information it does not include information on traveling to the city or on places to stay while there. Those decisions vary too much based on a person's budget and travel times to be able to include adequate information. (Description credited to The In-Depth Genealogist).
