Ancestors in the Attic
When I set out to answer basic questions about my ancestors, I had no idea what secrets I was about to discover. Addictions, illegitimate births, and mental illness had been covered up by family stories and "gaps in the narrative." Part-memoir, part-social history, and part-research guide for the amateur family historian, this book chronicles my expedition into the past and tells the stories of the ancestors that had been hidden in my family attic for 200 years. Drawing upon my expertise as a psychotherapist, I use my family stories to illustrate common themes in families and to show readers how family history research can help us achieve a richer understanding, not only of our families, but of ourselves.
