Format: Paperback
Emma Jolly's book is an excellent introduction to unearthing the secrets of your family history. Easy to use, well-written and full of fascinating facts, it's a great place to start delving into the past. It even has a section where you can start to create your own family tree.
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...
Highly recommended.

Format: Paperback
This is one of those rare treasures - a book full of projects and fun that is clear and concise in style and yet has the capacity to open up a whole new world of learning - perhaps even inspiring your child to go on and become a fully-fledged historian!

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.
