Genealogy

Genealogy

One of the timeless themes in literature, not matter what period we’re speaking about, is identity. The quest to know and truly understand who you are and where you came from. We see the trope play itself out again and again, with paupers turning out to be princesses and secret lineages hiding behind the most unassuming of characters. And of course with family being such an important part of all our lives, how can we treat the topic any differently?

 

With the theme appearing again and again in great literature, it comes as no surprise that it emerges in real life as well. People wanting to know who their grandparents’ grandparents were, what stories they could tell, what lives they led. Perhaps, like something out of Shakespeare, who you thought you were gets reversed and you can now be introduced to your true history!

 

Here at Kingdom Books, we get just as excited about these questions as you do. I mean, who wouldn’t want to know the true stories of their roots? Especially when it comes to tracking Scottish genealogies, what with the major importance of clan membership throughout history. Will all the tumult of the modern world, sometimes it is a great comfort to become acquainted again with the past and one’s place in it. In a constantly changing, ever-digital environment, it helps to know who you are and where you come from.

 

Which is why Kingdom Books is proud to offer a selection of Scottish books having to do with genealogy. From manuals assisting readers to find their own roots to histories of Scottish people to local records themselves, there’s no end of choice for those who want to buy genealogy books online.

 

They say that you must know the past to know the future, and at Kingdom Books we help you do exactly that!
