Product Description

From the Author

What I learned writing this book
I am an amateur genealogist, and the opportunity to write DO PEOPLE GROW was wonderful, because it allowed me to spend more time researching my own family history. While writing this book, I discovered more than two dozen ancestors I'd never known of, and got reconnected with many living relatives. Researching genealogy is challenging and fun, but it's also something else: A way to make powerful emotional connections with the past...and the present.

Format: Paperback
This book brings the study of genealogy alive by intertwining the author's own family search with the common experience of many of us to find our own roots and beginnings. It sensitively handles cultural differences and origins and attempts to highlight specific events that affected particular immigrant groups.
The frequent use of biographical resources (photographs, documents, sidenotes) allows the reader to relate the discussion of genealogy to actual people and events in history. Since this is also called the "Official Ellis Island Handbook" this book additionally gives a very personal and thorough look at what it meant to be an immigrant and the experience that awaited many of our ancestors when they arrived in America.
I highly recommend this book not only for children but for anyone that desires a concise definition of the field of genealogy and family history. Its highly visual format and organization also make it a great classroom tool.

This book really meets my needs. I love getting names off the pedigree charts into the context of their lives and this book is very motivating and helpful.
