This book chronicles the author's genealogical search to verify his grandfather's claim. Was he really related to the famed explorer, Sir Francis Drake? It reads like an unsolved mystery, revealing along the way many of the mistakes, heartaches and joys of the novice genealogist. However, Mr. Drake's narrative voice never overshadows the information he has compliled on the Drake family. His research covers many Drake lines from the 17th century English immigrants in Virginia, to the pioneer settlers of North Carolina and Kentucky, to the many Drakes in the author's home state of Illinois. In the hope of finding a connection, he follows the lines of Greenberry Drake of Barren Co., Kentucky, William Drake of Franklin Co., Virginia, John and Margaret Weldon Drake of England and Virginia, Jefferson Drake, and Josephus Drake. For beginning genealogists, this account ought to be an encouraging, instructional guide that can help them imitate his successes and avoid his pitfalls.
