„I learned so much!“
5.0 out of 5 stars
I learned so much! By Amazon Customer on Format: Paperback
The author states that genealogy is an obsessive hobby for which there is no cure, and I am sure she is correct. Her extensive research has resulted in a fascinating and thoroughly enjoyable book, both informative and entertaining. The first part of the book leads us through the ages of myths, legends and early history. Imaginative illustrations complement the narrative throughout, and the relevant time lines within each chapter will help readers, especially younger ones, to place events in their historical context. The second part concentrates on the author's personal ancestry over the past three centuries, including Irish, Scottish, Manx and Liverpudlian forebears, and explains her investigative methodology. I very much enjoyed reading "Our Ancestors" and I strongly recommend the book to all who have an interest in the subject of genealogy.

'Our Ancestors' far exceeded my expectations. The extent to which the author
researched her topic is nothing less than impressive! Most folk who are interested in genealogy
only go as far as they can with their own family tree. Ms. Strittmatter has gone far beyond!
Tying in politics, religion and folklore. The time lines are priceless. ie: my 2nd great grandfather,
born 1800-1890's is accompanied with a time line of Britain's population, historical events,
inventions, standard of living etc. From these I can develop similar times lines for my paternal
great grandmother. Matilda Jane Shouldice (Irish) born 1880 died 1978. 'Our Ancestors' includes
ample interesting illustrations, family coats of arms etc.
'Our Ancestors' is an excellent model for others to follow. You have set the bar very high
Ms. Strittmatter.
I could go on and on but I will end it here. I must read 'Our Ancestors' again!
Congratulation to the author re: your excellent document.
It should be in school libraries.
