Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 7 Up?This volume explores why people trace their roots and includes a discussion of adopted children and a list of resources available to them (primarily for searching for birthparents). Chapters summarize English, Scottish, and Welsh history and traditions, describing names, nobility, clans, and heraldry, and the history of British immigration to America. Instructions are given on how to start a genealogical search. The last chapter addresses how to preserve what is found. Each section includes an extensive bibliography. While most students doing genealogical projects would not be going into the depths of research outlined here, the basic information should prove useful. Black-and-white reproductions of historical drawings and photographs appear throughout, along with a 16-page insert of full-color photographs that focus on Britain today. There is one problem with this title. While material about finding birthparents is important to adopted children, a book on genealogy of a specific ethnic group may not be the most appropriate place for a four-page list of resources for adoptees searching for biological family. Altogether, however, this is a well-written and rich resource for interested students.?Jane Gardner Connor, South Carolina State Library, Columbia
