My newest book is a personal genealogy

Post by DanielAWillis » Tue June 5th, 2012, 5:54 pm

This is not historical fiction, but my latest book was released today.

I have spent years writing genealogical-based books about Europe's royal families. This time it is my own family I am writing about. My grandmother who adopted me was born a Drane. Her family has a fascinating story beginning in colonial Maryland, but it has been mistold so many times that many of the descendants take the incorrect story as fact.

My new book, Legends, Half-Truths, and Cherish Myths of the Drane Family, explores the family myths and relates the actual history of the family, meanwhile tracing all known lines of descent from the 1600s to roughly 1900.
