Professional Genealogy, A Manual for Researchers, Writers, Editors, Lecturers, and Librarians by Elizabeth Shown Mills is a manual by professionals for everyone serious about genealogy.

This book's 29 powerfully-packed chapters are a thoroughly researched and expertly presented treatment of a subject that has truly come of age.
