Jacobus, Donald Lines. Genealogy as Pastime and Profession.

2d ed., revised. Baltimore: Genealogical Publishing Company, 1991, 1968. 120p., softcover. $8.95. ISBN 0-8063-0188-0.

Jacobus is often regarded as the father of modern, “scientific” genealogy and this relatively slender volume (the first edition of which was published in 1930) is still one of the very best explanations of research principles and guides to types of resource materials published in English.
