Endorsements & Reviews-

"This is a guidebook for archival assistants and new librarians. It is broken down into simple, clear, concise concepts, illustrated in line drawing, cartoon-style. Its generic nature explains the how and why of archival work with only a few sentences; and the illustrations match the concepts. Each section has the same format: introduction and definition, examples, and fill-in-the-blank review-tests for each section and each chapter. The concise five page summary at the end covers the entire book, without the pictures, and substitutes for no index. A one-page bibliography completes the book. I recommend it for large libraries with a large staff."

Tim Loud, graduate student, Texas Woman's University

"The combination of simple statements, with images that illustrate one or two related points in an interesting way, has much to recommend it, particularly to volunteers working in the archive environment who may not have the background, or the opportunity, to digest the contents of a complex manual."

Barbara L. Craig, University Archivist and
Head of Archives and Special Collections at
New York University, North York

Bio(s)-

Jeanette White Ford was trained as an archivist in the National Archives of the United States. She served as archivist in Fort Worth. Now retired and living in Ridgway, Colorado with husband LeRoy, she devotes much of her time to water coloring the superb mountain scenery.

Her first book, 'Archival Principles and Practice', serves as a guide for small business and institutional archives. This volume illustrates the why and how of Church Archives. Step by step, it guides a volunteer church archival committee through the process of selecting, arranging, describing, preserving and referencing permanent church records.
