4.0 out of 5 stars The Ups & Downs of Discovering Your Family History, 28 Oct. 2008
This review is from: Imagined Memories - and the Seductive Quest for a Family History (Paperback)
Not a book about "How to do Genealogy" nor simply a story about one person's past family history, this is a book about the joys and frustrations of finding your roots. The ups when you make find a connection that reveals more about an ancestor, the downs when the person simply cannot be traced. (Mike Hulme's elusive individual is Susan West.)

Anyone who has tried to find out about their own past will be able to identify with the emotions Mike describes .... and, almost as asides, there are ways used by Mike when looking into his own family's past that other amateur genealogists may want to pursue.

Enjoy!

Imagined Memories - and the Seductive Quest for a Family History

What an excellent book. Superbly written. Sad, witty, educational, informative and oh so easy to read. Once I picked it up I could not put it down. Proving once and for all Genealogy is not for Anoraks.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant and funny, 17 Feb. 2008
This review is from: Imagined Memories - and the Seductive Quest for a Family History (Paperback)
I enjoyed Imagined Memories cover to cover. It is brilliant. Mike Hulme's sense of humour recounting his quest for dead people is superb. Effortless to read and well put together. Thanks Mike.
