Tracing family history is an absorbing, mentally stimulating, educational and frequently obsessive pastime.
Few of us have famous ancestors. But in the same way as historians have widened their interests in recent years from Kings, Queens and Presidents to the history of ordinary people, genealogy offers us the opportunity to see how people 'just like us' lived their lives through the centuries.
