    As a popular history of genealogy, rather than a 'how to' guide, this book puts the study of family history itself into a historical and social context. Sharpe traces the rise of genealogy from an esoteric interest of gentlemen and scholars to a hobby enjoyed by millions. He describes landmark events and personalities, but he also looks forward to the challenges ahead as 'this ancestry business' becomes not only a fast-growing leisure pursuit, but also big business.
