How is Prince William descended from Dracula? Do we all come from Africa? Were some of our ancestors really only three feet tall? This book, teeming with fascinating facts, history, photos and activities will inspire children to dig out their family records to discover their own ancestors and family connections. Using step-by-step activities, readers will be able to trace their histories through existing family records and interviews with members of the family.
