FREE DOWNLOAD FRIDAYS: Google Books for Genealogy Cheat Sheet

Did you know there are THOUSANDS of FREE genealogy books on Google Books? Learn how to leverage the power of Google Books for Genealogy!

FREE Cheat Sheet – Google Books for Genealogy

This week Free Download Friday focuses on accessing MILLIONS of FREE DIGITAL BOOKS on Google via Google Books.

I was an early adopter of Google Books when it first was available and the collection has really advanced my genealogy and family history research.

Here’s a tip: When I am on a research trip at a library or archive and I see a book that I want to use for research, I pull out my iPhone and search for the title in Google Books.  If it is available with Full View (see below), then I know I can spend the valuable time at the library on one-of-a-kind or hard to access materials!
