About the Book
To work with the past means that you journey into the world to collect information. Information is alive. It has personality and power. It can trick you and lead you astray, but it also presents you with amazing glimpses into the past if you learn how to befriend and tame its wild nature.

In the same way that you do not go on a holiday without a little groundwork, you should not venture into the past without a little planning for your journey. How To Have Fun With History is the key to an effective itinerary. It shows you how to access sources, how to extract information and how to understand the real story from the past.

An explorer of the past must be like a miner who knows where the gold is hidden, the best way to take it out of the earth and what tools to use to do the job.

Assimilate the three simple principles in this book and you will be able to open a door into the past. All you need for the journey itself is a small information tool kit and a keg of determination.

3. Genealogists who want to make sense of their family histories.
