An accessible, modern guide to the hugely popular art of tracing your family tree, "Grow Your Own Family Tree" offers a concise and comprehensive summary of how to locate and use a range of records and information to track down your own family history.

And unlike other books on the subject, the scope of "Grow Your Own Family Tree" extends far beyond Britain, to track your migrating relatives.In twenty-nine clear and helpful chapters, Alan Stewart takes you through every aspect of researching your family history and tells stories about the memorable discoveries that ordinary people have made in their own searches. As an expert on the internet, he also offers a detailed exploration of the very best websites and current Internet resources along the way. With this book to hand, it has never been easier to find out more about our ancestors.

For those delving into their ancestry, this book is a useful addition. Well written by an expert in the subject, it takes the reader through all you need to consider in researching you family. The book is not intended to take the reader through a lot of internet sites like some books do. However, it can be of considerable help in knowing where to look for that elusive ancester.

Excellent book for the new or experienced Genealogist. I would recomend this book to anyone either just starting out or who is experienced.
