Hard to put it down!,
This review is from: Shaking the Family Tree: Blue Bloods, Black Sheep, and Other Obsessions of an Accidental Genealogist (Paperback)
Part mystery, part history, part adventure, part science, part education, part memoir; this book does it all and does it well. Buzzy Jackson takes us on a search for her family roots that introduces us to the world of genealogy but doesn't shy away from its complexities. The author searches for her past from the perspective of a cruise ship, an abandoned graveyard, a road trip through the south, and even a tour of the New World Vatican -- Salt Lake City. Jackson's book is hard to put down and if you are like me, you will find yourself picking it right back up again when you've finished. Buy it for your family as well--makes a great conversation starter. After all, it's a subject we all share!
