From the cover: There can be few of us who havent wondered at some time about our family origins. What was life like for our grandparents and great grandparents? Where did their families come from? Are there any skeletons hiding in the cupboard or unsung stories of heroism and fame?

To discover the answers and to draw up your family tree successfully will require some detective work. You need to be able to pursue a lead and to follow up clues, to be methodical and patient. Above all, you need guidance on where to look for information and how to sift through documents and records to find vital missing pieces of the jigsaw.

This book, carefully written by accepted experts in their field, is a guide to help you in your quest. It is totally up to date and is a comprehensive workbook for the would-be genealogist. It explains in simple terms:

How to get started

How to organise and record your findings

Tracing your family tree is not only a source of great personal satisfaction; it also provides a framework of knowledge for your children and for later generations. With the help of this book, the events of history can acquire new meaning when you look at them in the context of your own family past.
