Was your grandfather a kindly old man, who lovingly tended his prize rhubarb, or did his spade have another use? And just what was in the cupboard in his shed? "Grandad Did a Dastardly Deed" continues the work of its companion book "Granny Was a Brothel Keeper" in highlighting pitfalls associated with family history. Written in a distinctive light-hearted style, this volume is packed with cartoons, true stories, and tips to take you further along your ancestral voyage of discovery. Expect to encounter dumpling-flingers, ancestors who drowned in exotic places, fake social network profiles, concealed lunatics, dwarf stranglers and malevolent microfilm.
