Local Libraries

TIP: Locate the local library where your ancestor lived and use their genealogy guides.  These usually provide links to local resources not found elsewhere.

Beginner Guides

Cyndi's List has a list of Beginner Guides from around the Web. 

Also, try Ancestry.com even though their tutorials are aimed at their site.  They do offer short guides for beginners.
