Family History Software -- My favorite is Personal
Ancestral File 5, by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. It is loaded with nice
features and FREE!
Source Citations -- How to properly cite your sources. My favorite guide to genealogy source citation is "EVIDENCE! Citation & Analysis for the Family Historian" by Elizabeth Shown Mills (sells for $16.95). This link takes you to the Amazon.com page for this book. You can also purchase it from Barnes & Noble, Deseret Book, and many other bookstores.
Cemetery Extraction -- The Association for Gravestone Studies site. Everything you need to know to do cemetery work. Includes a very nice section on how to properly clean tombstones without causing damage, how to photograph stones that are difficult to read, rubbings, etc. This is a very comprehensive site.
Tombstone Symbols -- A very nice guide to interpreting the symbols found on tombstones.
