Red Book 2004 edition

This guide to county and state resources for American researchers contains information on each of the fifty states and their individual counties. Included are a summary of state and local resources, applicable website and addresses and information on each county, including the address of the courthouse and information on what records are available in each jurisdiction.

Included are maps of all fifty states showing the respective counties. When your research crosses state lines (and it eventually will) you'll be glad you have this reference on your shelf. My 1992 edition is well-worn from use and I'm looking forward to receiving my new edition.

Michael co-wrote the chapters on Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Minnesota, and Ohio.
