Welcome to the Tisch Library guide to resources in Genealogy & Family History. Use the table of contents to find definitions, topic overviews, books, articles, and more that will help you with your research.
The library is currently closed due to COVID-19. However, if you have questions, need assistance with your research, or need to speak with a librarian, please email me or make a video consultation with me. My contact information is on the right-hand side of this page. Also, please feel free to Ask a Librarian.
Reference sources--like dictionaries and subject encyclopedias, provide overviews of topics and descriptions of concepts and ideas. They can also provide definitions, statistics, and other details. You can use this type of source to help narrow your research topic, find data to support your thesis, and identify keywords and main ideas to use as search terms.
