9780007117222: The People Detective: Discovering Your Family Roots

TV tie-in to a six part series on the BBC which follows fascinating case histories of people tracing their genealogy.

The book accompanies a major new BBC2 series which takes ‘ordinary’ people and takes them stage by stage through the process of discovering extraordinary ancestors.

Encompassing all the prolific research from the series, the book features the case histories, as well as being a standalone ‘how-to’ book, enabling readers to discover their own roots.

This series will be a prime-time puller of huge audiences, because of the universal appeal of the subject-matter. With an introduction by the show’s producer, who is tipped to be history’s answer to Jamie Oliver, the book is both a companion to the tv-series and a social history book with immense appeal.
