35 family history books coming soon

For those who like to browse in bookshops and bookstands at conferences let me whet your appetite with a selection from Amazon.com's catalogue of genealogy and family history books scheduled for release in 2012.
Release dates are guidelines. Publications are often available pre-release, or may not be available where you are until later. That's especially true of availability on another continent from where published.
Some of the authors are well known. Their books are a good bet. I've only seen one, DNA and Social Networking, which I'm favourably reviewing in a forthcoming issue of Internet Genealogy. Some others ... let's leave it at these aren't books I've seen.
