Time for the next category in the  RWC 2017 Reading Challenge.

Category #13: A book that helps explore your family history/heritage

Here’s another that’s going to vary for most people. First, you need to have some general understanding of where you come from, whether that’s geographically or biologically. Then, you need to track down those books.

Recently, I completed one of those nifty DNA tests that provide a ton of genealogical background. It was really fascinating. I found some books googling  “books that help you learn about (x) heritage.”

It might also be interesting to read books that help you learn about a relative’s occupation, whether that be a one-room school teacher, baker, king, or seamstress.

Perhaps your family lineage is so esteemed (or of ill-repute!) that there are books super-applicable to this category for you!

This category is hard to provide examples for so please share your ideas. It could be quite broad or very specific.

What will you read to complete this category? Leave a comment below with your thoughts about these or any I may have missed.

If you have suggestions for books that fit in future categories, let me know. I’ll include your name (and a link, if you like) when I share those suggestions.
