5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic for the beginner 27 Mar 2003
So much of the Family History software and literature is aimed at the American market that it was good to find this book aimed at the British market. If like me you are a beginner in Genealogy then it lets you know exactly where to look and what to do right down to what questions to ask relatives. It is well set out with examples and pictures which complement the text.
It's reasonably priced too. Thoroughly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy to follow and well presented. 26 Feb 2001
By A Customer
I was unsure whether or not i wanted to trace my family history. I thought i would by the book, have a read and see if it could help me decide. I opened the first pages and began to read. I read and read and soon i was raring to go.. Explore your family's past is a well presented, well informed book. It's basic with lot's of interesting information. It gives you lot's of encouragement on where to start looking, how to look, what to look for, what questions to ask, who to ask etc.. Each chapter is set out in a logical format. Keeping relevant information together. The book is enhanced by the use of photographs, useful addresses, web sites and the section on Real Lives. I found the book really interesting and useful. Even the sections which I though beared no relevance on my life were a good read. Some people may find the price to be slightly excessive but the quality of the product is second to none. As I have know started to research my family history I purchased a book called Tracing Your Family Tree by Jean Cole and John Titford. Using both books together they make a great team
