"'There are many guidebooks dedicated to tracing your family history from which the novice genealogist can choose, but this one, which promises to show you how easy it is to discover your own family history, is refreshingly different... Quite unlike the standard guidebook which sometimes reads like a text book, this diary engages the reader and, by way of example, passes on valuable hints and tips for anyone starting out on the genealogy trail.' PRACTICAL FAMILY HISTORY 'Diane Marelli's enthusiasm is boundless and her spirit tenacious. She gives new family historians the benefit of her experience, the pitfalls and tons of timesaving advice. Her quest consumed her life for four years and the final result is a joy to read and an encouragement for us all.' FAMILY TREE 'This four-year diary charts one genealogist's quest to trace her ancestry. With tips on using the internet, church records, and public archives, this will prove an enormous help.' GOOD BOOK GUIDE"
