Welcome to Claiming Kin’s bookshelf! I’m asked regularly what genealogy books and resources do I use with my family research. My answer to that questions is — A LOT! But I’m also an avid reader. So my genealogy reading goes beyond the “how-to” books to also include a variety of other reads such as historical fiction, biographies, memoirs, etc. Below is a compilation of books that I either have on my bookshelf, or have read at my local library. So explore my titles and let me know what you think. As I read new books, I will add them here. If there’s a genealogy related read that you think I would enjoy, don’t hesitate to share the title and author’s name with me in the comment section below. Happy Reading!
