Hi everyone,

I got a christmas gift from my sister who is an expert in finding things that relates to ones interests. She obviously thought about my interest in genealogy when she picked out the book for me this year: Barbara Vines "The Blood Doctor" (in swedish: Henrys bok).

Has anyone read it? I thought it was captivating not so much for the story itself, but for the way Vine discribes the reflective process in a man who collects information about his ggf of whom he is about to write a biography. Along the way he finds more and more peaces of evidence that indicate that this respected man was not all that good. The key issue is ethical. Anyone that has found something ugly in their family history will recognize this dilemma right away.
