PROVO, UT, October 8, 2008 — FamilyLink.com, Inc. announced today the availability of Google Your Family Tree, a new book that teaches family historians how to unlock the hidden power of the Internet’s most popular search engine. Written by Daniel M. Lynch, the book received an enthusiastic reception in Philadelphia last month when it was unveiled at the Federation of Genealogical Societies (FGS) annual conference. Pre-orders for the book have been brisk, and it is expected to ship within two weeks.
“This book is well positioned to become the best-selling genealogy book of all time,” said Paul Allen, chief executive officer of FamilyLink.com. “It is the right content, by the right author, at the right time. We couldn’t be more pleased to be releasing this book this month as millions of people in the United States celebrate Family History Month.”
FamilyLink.com, Inc. and Lynch agreed to the deal in March of this year. “Dan has done an exceptional job documenting the hidden power Google offers to family history enthusiasts worldwide,” Allen said. “It is the first such book written specifically for genealogists by an accomplished genealogist and technology expert.”
Lynch was recently on the KSL NewsRadio Relatively Speaking radio genealogy show with KSL NewsRadio personality and genealogy author Mary Slawson.

It will be in every major professional researcher’s library and hopefully in most of the beginners’ libraries. It’s a great book!”
Lynch began his career in the technology industry in 1984 and has also been involved in genealogy research for nearly 30 years. A frequent lecturer and writer, he began sharing his Google tips with fellow genealogists at the local and national level shortly after the search engine launched ten years ago. As the capabilities of Google have expanded, so too have its applications for use by family historians. “Google is easily the most important tool available for anyone engaged in family history research,” noted Lynch.
