This book was a truly inspired idea to compile those 'goose bump' moments in genealogy research when you realize you are not alone and there is a bigger force at work helping your efforts. This book inpires me to keep the faith, try harder to find those elusive lines, and never give up! Can't wait for Volume II, hopefully, I'll be able to add a similiar experience of mine. So worth the read!!

I was thrilled to be offered a review copy of Anne Bradshaw's newest book True Miracles with Genealogy. Family History is something that is dear to my heart. I have a file with over 48,000 family names my mom compiled prior to her death. I haven't done much with these names lately and was hoping this book would reinspired me to start again on my genealogy.

I'm inspired!

This book if filled with dozens of personal accounts of individuals who have received divine help while researching their family history.

This quote from the books summed things up perfectly:

These incidents could be attributed to sheer coincidence. Personally, I find it impossible to dismiss such consistencies as anything less than inspired. They are too many, too often, too consistent, and too remarkable to be mere serendipity.

Anyone interested in Family History is sure to enjoy this wonderful book.

I have been acquainted with several experiences both in my own family and with others about getting special help with genealogical research, so I was excited to see the stories that Anne had compiled. It seems to be almost a given fact that if you want to have some special spiritual experiences you just have to spend some time (maybe years) involved with doing work for our ancestors, but then recognizing the help when it comes.

I have always enjoyed reading stories like this and some of these stories were very touching and required me to keep some tissues near. It was also interesting to see how sometimes there are road blocks in the way because the time is not right, but that later the way is opened.

But this isn't only a book about genealogical research. I very much enjoyed the story about Daris Howard writing the musical "Lilacs in the Valley". He had strong impressions and communication about just how the story was to be written and performed. He mentions, "the most important thing I learned was that they are real people, not just names in a book or lists on a genealogy sheet." (p. 26)

Since this is a compiled record, there is a lot of variation in the style of writing. I found this somewhat disconcerting as I would go from one story to the next without any apparent connection or organization. John Counsel had three stories in the book, but I couldn't figure out why two of them were 51 pages separated from the first story. I skipped and read them together. It was also strange to see John Counsel say, "Two more of our stories appear in this book on pages sixty-five and seventy". Those words could only have come from the compiler of the book, not John Counsel.

I think this would have been a much better book if the stories had been edited and organized.

If you are the kind of person who loves doing family research but gets bogged down on running into brick walls for information then this new book would be an asset to your geneology collection. Anne Bradshaw has compiled a wonderful book of stories which are inspiring to those whose family members have passed on.

This unique idea of getting information from beyond the veil is not new to members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, which most stories are from. I have heard countless incidences of family searches which were helped by those who have passed on. It is a fascinating subject and Bradshaw has collected them for us to enjoy and be inspired so we can continue on searching even through the rough times.

So for all of you who love to read stories of those from the life beyond, whether you do family research or not, this is a fantastic read. Very inspiring.

Although I do not belong to any formal religion, the people whose stories I read in the book inspired me. Lest you think that these folks are not rigorous or scholarly enough, they go on to document their spiritual insights with regular, worldly, proof.

When you become frustrated by the latest "brick wall", sit down with this book and relax. You don't need to be LDS to enjoy the spirituality and hope that flow from the pages.

I remember the first time I watched "Roots" on television, and how Alex Haley's triumph in rebuilding his family tree resounded in my newly wed heart. My family tree was broken in so many places--through divorce, deaths and estrangements caused by the se events' resulting bitterness. After decades of hitting roadblock after roadblock, I began to think some of these breaks could never be bridged. If you've felt that way, then Anne Bradshaw's new release, "True Miracles with Genealogy," will inspire you to return to work on those lines with increased enthusiasm and faith.

Anne Bradshaw's book is not a genealogical how-to manual. "True Miracles with Genealogy" is a worldwide collection of astounding personal stories that illustrate the remarkable assistance available to us when we combine diligent research with help from beyond the veil.

Still, each short, unique story is crammed full of invaluable research tips from the successes of Bradshaw's contributors, nearly all of whom attest they found priceless information by listening to promptings and acting on the messages received. Some of these spiritual whispers inspired them to think out of the box, sending them to astounding, unlikely places like eBay and Amazon, or off on excursions where marvelous, miraculous doors opened for them.

Personally, I loved the story about the elusive ancestor who wanted his wife and children found, informing his genealogist-ancestor in a dream that once his family had been located, he would reveal his own information. His sensitive family-researcher followed that prompting and pursued a more obscure family line. In the end, it revealed the elusive ancestors' entire family, and soon thereafter material emerged that revealed his life as well.
