This series of student research tools explains the process of genealogical research while creating opportunities to practice and integrate social studies skills. It aims to promote better student understanding of solid research techniques and enhances the American curriculum. The series supplements the thematic strands in the New Curriculum standards for social studies in American schools, such as: culture, time, continuity, and change; individual development and identity; power, authority, and governance; people, places, and environment; individuals, groups, and institutions; global connections. The series also aims to provide students with the opportunity to practice the historian's craft as they learn how to: collect data; use the latest electronic research tools; obtain and evaluate documents and sources; conduct and record eyewitness acounts of historical events in family life. Each volume also explains to students the "whys" and "hows" of tracing their roots if they are adopted or come from non-tradtional families.

Each volume provides an easy to understand overview of the history of immigration and culture in the U.S. for the particular ethnic group....Where these books shine, for the student and adult genealogist, is in the resource listings....For students, these books provide a great way of getting started in genealogy and learning about the life and heritage of their ancestors. For adult researchers these books provide excellent resources to move beyond the genealogical books into learning about the history, culture and experience of their ancestors."-ARBA
