This is the companion guide to the US edition of 'Who Do You Think You Are?' tv program.

There is no such thing as an ordinary family. Each one has its own stories: the black sheep, the Civil War hero, the ancestors who fled to the United States, or the lost family fortune. No matter how plain you think your background is, chances are there is a saga just waiting to be discovered.

The groundbreaking NBC series 'Who Do You Think You Are?' takes seven of America's best-loved celebrities - from Lisa Kudrow to Susan Sarandon - on an emotional journey to trace their family history and discover who they really are. The revelations are sometimes shocking, sometimes heartbreaking, and always fascinating.

With the "Who Do You Think You Are?' US companion guide you will learn how to chart your own journey into your past and discover the treasures hidden in your family tree. Featuring step-by-step instructions from one of America's top genealogical researchers, 'Who Do You Think You Are?' covers everything you need to know to start digging into your roots, including:

  • Full-colour profiles of the celebrities' surprising revelations
  • Starting the search - it's as easy as putting out the old family photos
  • How to find and interpret clues to solve your own family history's mysteries
  • Census information - where to find it and how to use it
  • What birth, death and marriage certificates have to tell us
  • How to track down immigration and military documents
  • The latest breakthroughs in DNA testing
  • The best online resources to conduct your searches and store your new found discoveries to share with family and save for future generations

It has never been easier to bring your family history to life. You'll be amazed at how much there is to discover.
