5.0 out of 5 stars Skeletons in the cupboard 19 Oct 2011
By ivorex
This is a fascinating read, I downloaded it to my Kindle for some holiday reading, 70 tales from from readers of the 'Your Family Tree' magazine, based on true events in their ancestry, some distant, some recent, but all very interesting.

Of course being 70 individual stories you can read as little, or as much, as the mood takes you, and come back again to where you left off. Well worth reading to discover some real life skeletons in those real life cupboards.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing 9 Sep 2011
This is my first kindle book and probably my last. I read these stories in the magazine and thought the compilation would be interesting however the transfer between the magazine and the book failed - there are constant problems between the pages which don't follow on, leading to a real problem in grasping the flow; sorry but don't bother with this at the moment, a great idea let down by the lack of care in the production.

1.0 out of 5 stars Technotyphobia 15 July 2012
By Terence
Here we go again. A brilliant publishing company, employs the young games button
pushing technotypes who, in their lack of mature wisdom, think that everyone on the
planet is just like them, and can only read something if it is exclusively on Kindle.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not enough meat on the bones of these skeletons 21 Aug 2011
By C. Bannister TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
This is a compilation of 70 stories that readers have discovered in their own family trees. There is the usual range of infidelity, violence and dastardly deeds but as the stories were submitted to a Family History magazine are really too short too qualify as short stories. They have probably been very carefully researched by their descendents but as a reader you only get the very barest of bones of the skeletons. If some additional details had been added before deciding to publish these as a book I'm sure the result would have been a lot more enjoyable.

4.0 out of 5 stars enjoyable genealogy tales 9 May 2012
By B. B CLEMMER - Published on Amazon.com

I enjoy mysteries, history and, hence, genealogy. I purchased this for my kindle after learning about it from a UK genealogy magazine while I was there visiting relatives, and decided to read it on the plane trip home. I was glad that I did. These are short anecdotal stories written with varying levels of skill by amateur genealogists regarding some of their scandalous findings. If you are interested in that type of thing (and I am), it is a very enjoyable read that doesn't require a lot of concentration and can be read it bits and pieces if you prefer. It is a quick read (didn't take all of the plane trip by any means), and shares the enjoyment of bringing those skeletons out into the light with all of us. We all have those skeletons in the closet somewhere in our families, it's just nice to read about someone else's for a change.

Great book. It was interesting hearing family tales along with some of the places where they found information online. Being the U.K. was great for me as it gave me new sites to research.
