This book will bring back memories of stomping through cemeteries, days spent in hot musty libraries, and the days you waited anxiously for the mailman. A book geared to the lighter side of genealogy!

This is a very funny book. I've reread it a couple of times. Even though most genealogical research is now done at home via the computer this book about traveling around the U.S. to find ancestors is still relevant. The author describes a number of different types of researchers she met on the way. Those who won't share, respond to inquiries or are just plain disinterested are all discussed. Plus uncooperative clerks at courthouses, etc. Also, there are lots of helpful hints if you decide to "go on the road" looking for family. If you've been researching for a while you will appreciate her stories. If new at the game you'll be more prepared for what may await you on your journey. Highly recommended.

This book had some entertaining sections, but written 30 years ago has very obsolete search ideas and also very Un-PC comments. It's not staying in my library. I'll give it to a used-book sale.

An easy to read book. Worth the giggle if you are in anyway interested in genealogy. Even though it is outdated it still has some "I've been there" stories. It doesn't have to be up to date to see the humor in the history of historical family research.

I am so glad that I ordered this book. The author has shared funny anecdotes and thoughts about genealogy research and the people one encounters when doing research. While reading, I found myself nodding as I recognized people I've met along the way, situations I have experienced, and thoughts I have had. This is an enjoyable read, and a great reminder even looking for one's ancestors can bring fun and laughter if we just know where to look!
