Description
 
Based on the new SBS series that traces the family histories of six high-profile Australian celebrities, this book is the perfect introduction for anyone who wants to start exploring their own ancestry.

Throughout January and February 2008, the SBS television series called Who Do You Think You Are? took six well-known Australians on an intriguing and emotional journey as they trace their family history. This jargon-free companion book to the series is a highly accessible how-to guide that will show you how to find out about your own family history.

No prior knowledge is needed, as Who Do You Think You Are? equips you with the basic tools to start and extend your search. There is information on everything from where to find census information to tracking down convict records or details of military service. All the celebrity stories are included, giving fascinating examples of the different directions a search can take.

But be warned: this is a compulsive hobby and you may soon find yourself thinking of nothing else.
