Synopsis

Who am I? The Family Tree Explorer by Anthony Adolph

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. By the end of the book, children will have created their very own extended family tree, will have understood why we have surnames and how Genghis Khan is related to the British Royal Family.
