Doug Bremner’s latest book, The Fastest Growing Religion on Earth: How Genealogy Captured the Brains and Imaginations of Americans is described by a reviewer as “Another fascinating adventure by this author with great attention to detail, a unique sense of humor and a compelling way of writing about both himself and his topic. For millions of Americans, the quest to find one’s ancestors has become an obsession, and for some even a religion. After writing a book about the history of his family, the author realized that half of it was missing, literally. This is the story about how he found the other half, and what he learned along the way about the history and practice of genealogy, his fellow genealogy fanatics, and himself.”
You can get the book for 99 cents on Kindle and in paperback from Amazon. Other formats may be found at this link.
