So many of us have a yearning to know all we can about our ancestry roots. This is demonstrated by the popularity of television programmes such as, ‘Who Do You Think You Are?’ Enthusiasm on the subject of family history has rarely been higher and ‘Amazing Women - Our Ancestresses,’ takes the reader on an ancestral voyage back down the ages, through the female line, looking at a past that highlights how we as a human race are inter-connected, and bringing it to life through real women and their social history, from ordinary Victorians to noble women of the 11th century, even Queens of England.
Amateur genealogists may only consider tracking basic information, but ironically, this is like having a skeleton without any flesh on the bones. ‘Amazing Women’ sets out to help the reader create ‘real’ ancestors. Lesser known tips for gleaning genealogical information is also included to inspire and generate excitement, through a story that novice genealogists will be able to write for themselves, based on their own ancestors and ancestresses, and who may also be, yours and mine!
