Professional genealogist Megan Smolenyak writes in a lively style that captures the interest of the reader and makes genealogy fun. This book is connected with the NBC TV series of the same title featuring celebrities searching for their family history. A centerfold area discusses that tie-in, but most of the book is devoted to helping the reader search for his or her own ancestors.

Smolenyak is quite thorough in her presentations, noting several possible Internet sites that are free as well as those that charge a fee and outlining their high and low points. She also presents offline places to go for genealogical records, but she highly recommends using the Internet since there is so much information to be found there.

The author livens the resource information with stories from her own life, which makes the book entertaining as well as practical. This book, delightful to read and ponder, is highly recommended to those interested in genealogy.
