Morgan has done a fantastic job of creating relevant charts and journaling pages, with ways to bridge ones ancestry to an exhaustive and current chronicle. This is a joyful way to write essential record keeping which will turn into a most cherished heirloom
Beautiful cover and so many useful sections that I hadn't thought of before.
And in-depth sections.
An absolute treasure trove of information once filled. Also, a family stories gathering and also family history.
The font is beautiful and the pages seem like there will be a good paper quality used. That of course I can not tell by e format but it does appear it will be a great gift book for Family Geneology but mostly for family history.
I would like to thank NetGalley and the publisher Quatro Publisher Group a WellFleet Press for the opportunity to read and review Our Family Tree by Sharon Leslie Morgan.
A thoroughly and thoughtfully designed book to record one's genealogy and so much more! This is an extremely practical, time-saving, and stress-diminishing resource for anyone who would like to begin preserving their family's history and memories but does not know where to start. There is no doubt that when the pages of this book are filled, that it will become a priceless keepsake for a family's future descendants.
As someone who has recently spent time researching their unbalanced family tree, I found myself immediately clicking on this book. I truly wish this was something my parents or grandparents had filled out that could be passed on down the line. While research I've done online has lead me to learn tons of new names of potential relatives, addresses, schools, etc., they wouldn't allow me to learn family member's favorite hobbies, foods, sports, etc. that is provided by Morgan in Our Family Tree. She also provides pages that allow you to record illnesses and hereditary diseases. Visually, the book is also beautiful, from the cover to the design of the pages, and although I've viewed a digital copy, a hardcover print is bound to last a while through generations as this book is intended to be passed. As someone in their very early twenties who has lost a lot of family members, I'm left with a lot of questions, a lot of blank spots and blank family portraits on ancestry websites, and I truly cannot express how much I wish I had something like this passed down to me by my parents or grandparents. This goes beyond being just a book, it's a momento, an heirloom, and an incredibly important records book.
Thank you to the publisher and NetGalley for an e-copy of this book.
This is an old-fashioned family tree book, the sort that will be passed down and cherished for generations and the sort that has been overtaken by on-line family trees. It is of course difficult to properly see and use the book as an e-book, but it looks beautifully produced and illustrated. It is packed full of opportunities to record not just the names and dates of ancestors but their events, memories, achievements and so much more. I think that anyone interested in their family history would love the process of completing this book.
It is aimed at US readers, and if there was a UK version I would definitely buy it.
