This was a good read and kept my interested. Of course I am a genealogy addict. The book has history, lots of genealogy, good guys and bad guys, human interest and romance. For those into genealogy I believe they will enjoy the book as long as they realize it is a fiction. The book provides details on how to do genealogy research to some degree. There are a few references and websites listed at the back. A relaxing, enjoyable summer read for all us bitten with the bug. The book would also be good for younger adolescent readers.

Best New Genealogy Fiction June 3 2008
By Christine Mccreedy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
FUG 10 is one of the best new genealogy mysteries I have read in the last several years. Osman's story is based on his experience of researching his own Pennsylvania ancestors. The story is suspenseful, historical, modern, emotional, and witty. These attributes make for any good mystery. What sets apart a great genealogy mystery for me are the methods of investigation. Do the methods of investigating the ancestors involved in the story make sense? Are they creative? Are they based in what is available to a real genealogist? Osman's experience shines through. His fictional Rhone family understands investigating the past requires not just collecting dates, names and places but understanding the events surrounding our ancestors lives and creating hypothesis that can be tested by uncovering not just one, but several pieces of evidence that confirm the hypothetical.
FUG 10 introduces us to the history of several Pennsylvania counties and paints a story of typical migration, marriage and family relationships right after the Revolution. The stories of these ancestors could be the stories of our ancestors. This fictional history creates the mystery for the Rhone family and ultimately the reader too. The Rhone's know what all genealogist know-genealogy is addictive. As a confirmed addict I was totally drawn into Osman's mystery. I tried to stay one step ahead of the Rhone's with my methods of historic investigation, but they opened my eyes to several new sources. The story had me reading about my own Pennsylvania ancestors as I read about the Rhone family. When fiction meets reality a reader not only enjoys a story, but also relates to a story. Osman has written such a believable and enjoyable mystery that I'm looking forward to the next brick wall his fictional genealogists break down.

Riviting Historical Novel June 5 2007
By J. R. Cocklin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A very interesting Historical Novel which combines mystery with history.

The book is crafted in a way that you can not anticipate the ending and ties in generations of a family starting during the Revolutionary War and ending with the current generation.

I could not put it down until I finished it.
Great Read! Feb. 11 2014

I loved this book! The historical content, and exploration of ancestry were woven in such a way that I could not put the book down. I took it with me on vacation for something to read at the pool, and had it finshed before I got off the plane.
Two and a half stars? March 12 2011
By Winston - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
After seeing all 5 stars, I couldn't wait to read this book. As an amateur genealogist myself, I found the premise very interesting. This was an ok book but not great. I regretted paying full price for this book instead of waiting to buy it used. My expectations were set too high, apparently, by the 5 star reviews. This book was not a 5 star book. I found the characters underdeveloped, they felt shallow. The conversations were predictable. The actual information about the Continental Dollar was interesting. The genealogy information was predictable, there was no fascinating or even interesting twist to gathering or finding the information. The history pertaining to the Hessian Triangle was engaging. However, the whole theme did not flow smoothly. Again, ok to average book - not bad and not great.
One of the best genealogy mysteries I have read Sept. 29 2009
By Jeanne W. Strong - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
As a professional genealogist and reseacher of American ancestry, I read this novel and found it outstanding in facts, nuance, imagination of possible scenerios during the Revolution. I wish the author would write more novels.
