From School Library Journal:

Grade 4-8For students interested in family history, this book is just the ticket. In 16 brief chapters, a surefire method for conducting genealogical research is outlined. General background predominates in the first four sections, which cover rationale, basic Mendelian genetics, and degrees of relatedness. The rest of the book introduces various interviewing techniques, data collection and storage, and ways to present the story of a family once it is together. Suggested research tools include interviews (whether by letter, phone, tape recorder, or e-mail), videotapes, schematic representations of family trees, and scrapbooks. Branching Out boxes offer tips on getting facts and locating pictorial data. Detective Tip sidebars frame questions, while Amazing Family Facts offer information on families, holiday customs in other countries, the implications of human migration, and addresses of genealogical organizations in the United States and Canada. Reproducible pages (in three double-page spreads) provide forms for making a family tree, recording ones own family facts, and interview questions and answers. MacEacherns cartoon illustrations are bright and energetic enough to carry readers through the more nuts-and-bolts portions. A brief glossary and short but accurate index round out this useful resource.Ann Welton, Terminal Park Elementary School, Auburn, WA
