Ms. Schott's book motivates one to take the first step of the research journey. Nicely laid out and easy to read. I would recommend reading it cover to cover and then re-read it when you are ready to take action. Then get you highlighter and post-its out to flag the pages and sections that lead you to helpful information on the internet and other named sources. You may only want to research your `roots' in the USA; however the author provides stories and tips from her numerous overseas experiences which can lend to a domestic journey. Maybe it is the child in the adult me, but I like the photos. They serve as a good reminder to document finding with photos and words too.

"Visiting Your Ancestral Town" By Carolyn Schott is a absolute treasure trove of material for the Genealogist who has decided that birthday dates and death certificates are not enough to understand his/her ancestors. When that is the case then a trip to the
Ancestral Town is in order whether that town is big or small any where in the United States or whether it is any place some where else in the world. Schott provides helpful hints on first steps - what you need -when things go right -when things go wrong. It is hard to understand the emotional high, unless you have experienced it, to stand in a Church where your Grandparents were married or visit a house they once lived in. The emotional feeling of those kinds of experiences take the genealogical experience off the Pedigree sheets to a new and higher emotional level in the understanding of your origins and your relatives. It is must book for any genealogist traveling to their Ancestral Town

Good things come in small packages. Genealogy has always intrigued me, but the overwhelming amount of information that one has to sift through and dissect, has kept me from putting anything more than my toe into those waters. Ms. Schott's book makes it seem possible to take the plunge. This little guide is filled with easy-to-understand and common-sense approaches to discovering those places that our ancestors called home. Stories of her own experiences, during quests in the "old country", added humor and a positive spin, especially when her well-laid plans went a little sideways. I thoroughly enjoyed this book.

Ms. Schott lays out in an easy to read format a fun and informative book about visiting your ancestral town. This book answers many of the basic questions many of us have such as why, when, and how, as well as what to expect and what to do when things go wrong. Adding her personal experiences and photos to the book made it more interesting for me. The planning tools she included will help make your adventure a success, no matter where your ancestral town is. I wish I would have read this book before I visited my ancestral town.
