If you are a Pakeha New Zealander there is one fact you can count on: your ancestors came here from somewhere else. The answers to questions about who they were and where they came from is quite probably available to anyone with curiosity, a degree of determination and access to a reasonable Internet connection. There have been some excellent books written about setting out to discover and write up your family history. This one is different. Although it covers the basics of how to go about your genealogical quest, its main focus is on the resources available on the Internet. It offers a step-by-step guide to tracking down those elusive relatives. It also combines an analysis of the major family history web sites with a breakdown country by country, county by county of available resources.Along the way it conveys an infectious enthusiasm for the way a study of family roots becomes not only an absorbing hobby, but how it can also lead to new friendships with relatives and strangers, brings history alive and, most of all, leads to an appreciation for those brave souls who, for whatever reason, had the vision to move to the other side of the world in order to give all of us a better life.
