Norman Wright, the author of the highly regarded textbook Preserving Your American Heritage, is one of the giants in our field. In this book, Professor Wright takes us on a genealogist’s odyssey and shows us how research is done by recounting three of his most memorable cases. While it’s completely factual, Adventures in Genealogy reads like a collection of detective stories–complete with chance meetings in cemeteries, serendipitous phone calls, and not one but two murders. Supported by photographs and facsimiles of documents throughout, here is a book that should command the attention of all researchers and, especially, those who might benefit from observing a master genealogist at work.
