Genealogist Keith Gregson takes the reader on a whistle-stop tour of quirky family stories and strange ancestors rooted out by amateur and professional family historians. The lively entries tell the story behind each discovery and then offer a brief insight into how the researcher found and followed up their leads. They reveal a range of chance encounters and the detective qualities required of a family historian. Readers will meet all kinds of interesting personalities and be introduced to a range of fascinating source materials, stretching from an eighteenth century shopping note, to a photograph of an event that never happened, to a family grave with a missing body. They will travel from a far-flung Shetland Isle down to the bottom of a Cornish copper mine and across the vast margins of the former British colonies via the USA to Australia and New Zealand. A Viking in the Family is full of unexpected discoveries in the branches of family trees and encourages budding genealogists to delve into the hidden corners of their family history.
