From School Library Journal
Grade 6 Up. In addition to acting as a young person's introduction to genealogy, this text also serves as a good general source for the study of Mexican-American history. In fact, the first third of the book is devoted to developing readers' pride in their heritage. (The authors assume that all readers will be Mexican Americans.) One strength is the authors' discussion of the genealogy of nontraditional and adoptive families. The lengthy lists for further reading that appear at the end of each chapter are also beneficial; however, nearly all of the titles are adult publications. Lila Perl's The Great Ancestor Hunt (Clarion, 1990) is a better overall introduction to the subject, but it does not specifically address Mexican-American genealogy.?Denise E.
