In the ten years since the publication of Do People Grow on Family
Trees? (121,000 copies in print), the Internet has completely transformed genealogy, making family history the second most popular hobby in the U.S. after gardening and genealogy the second most searched for subject on the Web.
Now completely revised, updated, retitled, and filled with detailed guidance on utilizing the Internet, Climbing Your Family Tree is the comprehensive, kid-friendly genealogical primer for the 21st century, and a dramatic story of how and why our ancestors undertook the arduous voyages of immigration to this nation. It teaches kids to track down important family documents, including ships' manifests, naturalization papers, and birth, marriage, and death certificates; create oral histories; make scrapbooks of photos, sayings, and legends; and compile a family tree. A full chapter is devoted to the online search, and relevant Internet information has been incorporated into all the other chapters. Also new are more kids' genealogical stories and a reworked, easier-to-use design, and supporting the book will be a Web site that will include record-keeping pages, links to sites in the book, and more.

Ira Wolfman, the former editor-in-chief of Sesame Street Magazine, is a writer whose articles have appeared in Travel + Leisure, Redbook, Ms., and other publications. He is also the author of Climbing Your Family Tree.From School Library Journal:
Grade 5-9-In this revised, updated edition of Do People Grow on Family Trees? (Workman, 1991), Wolfman enthusiastically and thoroughly covers all aspects of genealogy, from forms, heirlooms, interviews, and names to immigration, documents, adoption, and Internet resources. Numerous examples; helpful, amusing sidebars and illustrations; and clear instructions are found throughout the volume. Each of the 11 chapters begins with a summary and ends with a handy "To-Do List." The book even has a companion Web site that includes links to useful URLs, downloadable charts and checklists, tips, quizzes, and games. Unfortunately, the list for further reading relies heavily on old, out-of-print titles, and more up-to-date books are available. Still, Family Tree is the best children's book available on the subject, and will be profitable and inspiring to adults as well.
