Product Description

From School Library Journal

Grade 7 Up?This volume explores why people trace their roots and includes a discussion of adopted children and a list of resources available to them (primarily for searching for birthparents). Chapters summarize English, Scottish, and Welsh history and traditions, describing names, nobility, clans, and heraldry, and the history of British immigration to America. Instructions are given on how to start a genealogical search. The last chapter addresses how to preserve what is found. Each section includes an extensive bibliography. While most students doing genealogical projects would not be going into the depths of research outlined here, the basic information should prove useful. Black-and-white reproductions of historical drawings and photographs appear throughout, along with a 16-page insert of full-color photographs that focus on Britain today. There is one problem with this title. While material about finding birthparents is important to adopted children, a book on genealogy of a specific ethnic group may not be the most appropriate place for a four-page list of resources for adoptees searching for biological family. Altogether, however, this is a well-written and rich resource for interested students.?Jane Gardner Connor, South Carolina State Library, Columbia

Review

"Each volume provides an easy to understand overview of the history of immigration and culture in the U.S. for the particular ethnic group....Where these books shine, for the student and adult genealogist, is in the resource listings....For students, these books provide a great way of getting started in genealogy and learning about the life and heritage of their ancestors. For adult researchers these books provide excellent resources to move beyond the genealogical books into learning about the history, culture and experience of their ancestors."-FGS Forum

..."this is a well-written and rich resource for interested students."-School Library Journal

"As a whole, the book is an interesting read, and the recommended resources should prove useful to those who want to pursue their British genealogy."-ALBA

"The authors have included descriptions of electronic tools used by family researchers. Few other titles on this level mention CD-ROM censuses or other vital records, yet these volumes even compare specific family history software programs....they offer very specific advice to young people on how to write relatives, what to ask, and how to file information once it's collected."-Booklist/Reference Books Bulletin
