Ancestor Trouble

Maud Newton has written for the New York Times Magazine, Harper’s, the New York Times Book Review, and the Oxford American. She grew up in Miami and graduated from the University of Florida with degrees in English and law. 

Searching, moving, and inspiring, Ancestor Trouble is one writer’s attempt to use genealogy—a once niche hobby that has grown into a multi-billion-dollar industry—to expose the secrets and contradictions of her own ancestors, and to argue for the transformational possibilities unlocked when we reckon with our ancestors.
