Overview

Have you ever wondered just who your ancestors are?

Discover The Secrets to Finding Family You Never Knew You Had!
Do you imagine that you are distantly related to a movie star, president or some other noted person? Most people wonder about their ancestors or other relatives who they do not know. After all, you never know if you are a distant cousin of someone famous unless you bother to take a look at your family history.

Years ago, families would keep family trees in the family bible. They would write in the births, deaths and marriages of all of the members of the family. Very few families, if any, do this today. Most people have no idea who their great-grandparents are or anything about them. But that does not keep them from wondering.

If you are like me, you wonder about your relatives and ancestors and want to know more about them. After the book "Roots" came out, it got a lot of people into the mode of learning about their family history. Alex Haley's journey was truly remarkable because he wrote the book over a course of years when there was no internet to help him. But thanks to the internet and many government agencies going to computer technology.

More Options Than Ever!...

You can find out everything that you need to know about your relatives and ancestors when you go online. Not only can you discover your own roots, but you can also find family members that are distant relations in this way. You can get in touch with distant cousins who are removed a few times and find that you share the same heritage - part of the same blood. You never know who you are going to find if you decide to go online and search for your family history. Now you have a way to learn how you can do it and why with... Family History Search.

Unlike other books, this book takes you on a journey. You not only learn how you can find your family history and which records to look up, but this book is written with my own experience of finding my own family history. You will find, after reading this book, that not only can it be interesting to find your family history, but it can be a lot of fun.

And this entertaining book will show you the way that you, too, can discover your ancestors and long lost family members easily and right from home.
