Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 7 UpPicking up where Lila Perl's The Great Ancestor Hunt (Clarion, 1989) leaves off, these books provide the actual details of researching ancestors from specific nationalities. Each one follows a similar format of introducing the country, ethnic group, and emigration to America. The organization of the books differs after these initial chapters, with each focusing on different ways to chronicle a family history. The authors are realistic about the research, cautioning readers about reluctant interviewees and the expense that might be incurred. The tone, however, remains enthusiastic in both. Both books also touch upon adoption and how one can search for birth parents. Extensive, annotated lists of resources appear at the end of each chapter, and include Internet sites, computer programs, and addresses and phone numbers of related government agencies in the U.S. and abroad. Full-color and black-and-white photos lend an attractive touch. These books should be the first stop for students interested in tracing their roots for a school or family project, or for personal knowledge about their heritage.Carol Fazioli, Cardinal Hayes Library, Manhattan College, NY
