Jesse Rodriguez was a busy man.

Active for more than 50 years in the West Side Lion’s Club, which he helped establish, Rodriguez also belonged to the Alamo Council of the Navy League and was an avid genealogist, researching his own family, and that of his late wife, and writing a book in both English and Spanish to help others get started in discovering their roots.

Bern Township author James M. Beidler's second book on genealogy, "Trace Your German Roots Online: A Complete Guide to German Genealogy Websites", has been released by Family Tree Books.

The book is a follow-up to Beidler's "The Family Tree German Genealogy Guide," which was printed by the same publisher in 2014.
