One of the best sections for me was discovering more about immigration, about all the people who came to the UK from across the world and contributed to our amazingly diverse make-up. As someone whose grandparents were in WW II I also enjoyed the section on what our ancestors did in the war.
With sections on the origins of family names, social history, and where else to look further, this is an indispensible guide for anyone interested in finding out where they're from - and maybe finding if nan was fibbing when she says you're related to royalty...
But, for now, it will give the means by which to foster an interest in your family's past and make it come alive again. History can be fascinating and fun - not some dry old bag of bones. And Emma Jolly really knows how to bring the past to life.
