    This is a small book and a uick but good little read If you are looking for ideas on exactly how to put together a family cookbook then this isn't the book But if you are looking for ideas on where to look online and ideas on what you can include in your family cookbook then this is the book to use She provides some really good interview uestions to help get the ball rolling and the back part of the book are blank recipe pages where you can begin to collect family recipes and stories It is chockful of sources she used that would be interesting to look into also as she dives into the historical aspect of cookery This is very well written and will provide motivation to start collecting those recipesThe best way to find out exactly how you would like to put your cookbook together is by browsing through community cookbooks and such that include family andor local history and find one that appeals to you personally

    To start offlet me say I loved the bookWhy?I've often advocated using food as a touchstone in history especially when it comes to the feminine portion of the history So often it's blatantly obvious that it's HIS story rather than hers as we read one history book after another In order to better understand her story the kitchen is often where we need to look This book brings it closer to home encouraging us to explore our own personal historical background and bring the recipes to life once againI grew up with great grandparents that had been born in the 1800s and had seen our world go from horse and buggy to rockets to the moon I remember uite fondly my great grandmother's fascination with the convenience foods of the 1960s and those memories are often filled with a great deal of humor I listened to many hours of stories from my grandmothers and sometimes those stories included memories of fancy feasts as well as very hard times It was also the story of women and their struggles including the suffrage era and the Great Depression It also presents a much feminine point of view of my own background than any history book will ever give meWhile the book doesn't supply ancestors it's interesting inspiring and can take you on a journey that will definitely inspire a foodie's exploration into history while making history come alive for future generations as it becomes something that is very tangible Most people love watching historical re enactments so why not have a few of your own in miniature? For me this book encourages us all to find the fun and food of history and make it our own It's a great book to help you share HER story instead of just HIS story It takes geneology out of dusty records and dry boring dates into something very tangible It also happens to remind me of something my mother did she would hunt up recipes from countries or regions of interest and then make them bringing everything from stories of the Bible to geography to life for us They weren't focused on our own ancestry but it was still interesting and fun even though they were still recipes of modern origin and using very modern ingredients Over the years we also have sampled some of the joys of her own youth although I have to admit I've always passed on the concept of chewing pinon pine sap in lieu of chewing gumI highly recommend this book for anyone who is interested in genealogy women's history etc There are a lot of very useful ideas even if you don't want to try and record your own recipes and stories in the book I prefer a keyboard to a pen myself It's sure to inspire you to add food to your research which will soon have you creating a whole scrapbook of photos and memories to coordinate with that boring pedigree It's fun to find your ancestors that fought in the Civil War the Revolutionary War or were present at the signing of the Magna Carta butdon't you wonder what the women were doing then? Make the stories come to life and fun for future generations

    Why doesn't everyone include food traditions in their family history? That uestion got my attention right away In my world most events revolve around food And not just family events either Trips are remembered for restaurants and local dishes first then sights later Gena uses this book to provide a social history reference helping genealogists trace their female ancestors and she does this beautifully Not only that you can use the tips and resources provided in this book to help add life to your ancestors Social history doesn't get the attention it deserves but Gena puts it front and center in this book It is a delicious literally read and one full of great ideas I have the NOOK edition which resides in the reference collection permanently installed on my iPad

    I really liked the first part of the book which was about the history role of food in our ancestors' lives The second part was for the most part reference but it was still somewhat interesting I think the thing I liked overall was that it got me to really consider my own food memories
