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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining 5 Oct. 2014
By Heather
Verified Purchase
Working as a local & family history researcher I found this book very interesting reading and only wish I had some scandals in my own tree - which unfortunately is quite boring but I'm holding out hope of some random discovery one day.

One thing that is really good about the stories is that they aren't really long winded so makes them really easy to read.

Highly recommend this book to anyone interested in family history.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing 9 Sept. 2011
Verified Purchase
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
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.
