This is the one family history book you will not want to do without. You might be starting out on your ancestral search or seeking fresh genealogical avenues: here you are offered a wealth of reliable advice covering the repositories, the records, the research methods and more. However, this lavish new publication goes further than most, recognizing that the process of establishing lines of descent is enriched by exploration of past times. Starting with the twentieth century, it looks down the ages to cover not just establishing our ancestors' names, but also how they lived: their daily experience, their communities, and their society. You will discover that family history is as much an imaginative journey as a research challenge.
