I reviewed two vastly different genealogy / history books recently on my blog (https://www.TheBibliophage.com). Decided to post here, since Newton‘s book is brand new. Family history fascinates me—whether it‘s my own or not. So Newton‘s rambling discourse on her own family was a treat. I wish I‘d liked more of the people she talks about. But that really is the true challenge of family research. Sometimes you learn difficult things. ⬇️

BarbaraTheBibliophage Newton has that in spades, along with research and discussion on the phenomenon of family genealogy research. As for the Sykes book, it‘s *very* dry and academic. But since I wanted to know more about why so much Norwegian ancestry shows up in my DNA, it fit the bill. My family tree is predominantly from British Isles, so he helped me see the options. 5mo
jlhammar Great reviews. Thanks for sharing! 5mo
BarbaraTheBibliophage @jlhammar Thanks. I appreciated yours as well. Especially because you also found the pace pretty slow. I struggled with this one more than I expected to. 5mo

A really good supernatural cozy. Lily moves to San Francisco to open a vintage shop and have a normal life. But of course that doesn't work out and she ends up with a surprise familiar, Oscar, and in the middle of a murder investigation 🐷
