Review: Reference Work for Comprehensively Researching Historical Criminal Records

A review of Ron Aron's Wanted: U.S. Criminal Readers - Sources and Research Methodology, posted on the Law Librarian Blog October 1, 2010.

Here is an excerpt from that posting:

..."If Aron's work was a valuable research tool just for family historians, I would not be writing about on LLB. Once I pry his publication out of the Blog Widow and her aunt's hands (well, most likely I will have to buy them a copy), it is going into our county law library reference collection because I know of no other research guide that is this comprehensive and detailed for investigating criminal records, all criminal records, not just digitized ones. The utility of Wanted! US Criminal Records–Sources & Research Methodology also clearly extends to professional historians, law profs and law students, sociologists and criminologists. Now they may not be the typical user of a county law library but academic law libraries, do take note. To effectively research criminal records, Aron writes 'you have to understand what sources of information are available and you need guidelines for finding and working with these records.' He provided both."

Hello, I think your
website might be having browser compatibility issues.
When I look at your
website in Opera, it looks fine but when
opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.
I just wanted to give you a quick
heads up! Other then that, terrific blog!
