[Review submitted by CCGS Librarian Betsy Ferris]
Immediately after listening to our wonderful speaker, Leslie Albrecht Huber, at the September 2010 meeting of the Cape Cod Genealogical Society, library volunteers Brenda Hayes and Betsy Ferris scrambled to purchase Leslie’s latest volume for the CCGS Library. Her new book, The Journey Takers, is a story of her family, and even more a book about how to research and tell a family story, using many types of sources and resources, documenting information properly, and making the narrative as flowing and readable as a novel.
In this fascinating little tale are tips and inspiration for genealogist readers who travel vicariously with the author, chapter by chapter from Germany to Sweden, to England and back to Utah. The Journey Takers is listed in the Biography section of the CCGS Catalog of books under 92 ALBRECHT, Albrecht being the first family surname investigated along this literary journey. It is a wonderful read with extensive notes and bibliography.
