Every page features several photographs and illustrations that help the reader and further illuminate these ancient people.
The staggering amount of material that had to be assembled and collated for Families, not to mention the actual writing itself, leaves this reviewer in awe of the accomplishment. . . . A book to own, read cover to cover, and pull from the shelf again and again.
This remarkable compilation of biographical and historical data is original in its scope, format, and content

Top customer reviews
Each chapter contains
- a general description,
- an extensive genealogical tree with relationships marked as either certain, highly probable, likely or hypothetical,
- a section with short descriptions of all involved persons,
- many photographs and drawings.
Where "Chronicle of the Pharaohs" by Clayton focuses on the rulers of Ancient Egypt, Dodson and Hilton describe all their known (likely) family members.
Recommended for genealogical buffs, those interested in Ancient Egyptian royalty and scholars.
