Last weekend I attended the very successful Family History Show, South West at the UWE Exhibition hall near Bristol. One of the stands there was for Discover Your Ancestors, for whom I am a regular writer. I was so pleased to see that the new Discover Your Ancestors Issue 9 had just come off the press and was available there and in the shops now! With articles on tracing your house history, the family history of the cast and the castle of Downton Abbey and items covering criminal gangs to criminal lunatics, it’s a read that’s hard to put down.
The quality of the glossy bookazine really is amazing and I was impressed with the treatment that the editor, Andrew Chapman, had given both my pieces and the other writer’s articles to make them so attractive on the page.
This 196-page bookazine contains new in-depth articles, research advice, social and general history, ‘how to’ features, case studies, places in focus, and much more! It is ideal for both experienced researchers and those just starting out.
In this volume you will find features on:
Downton Abbey: the historic location, stars and their family histories
Charles Dickens 150th Anniversary
Celebrity Genealogies: Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Rowan Atkinson
Peaky Blinders & The Krays: the real history of organised crime gangs
DNA and how it can pinpoint ancestors’ locations
and much more!
Also included are over £170 of FREE resources! Including a free online research subscription and a voucher for a free subscription to the monthly online magazine, Discover Your Ancestors Periodical.
Pick up this new release from WHSmiths or go online to S&N Genealogy Supplies where you can also find Discover Your Ancestors Back Issues so you can complete your collection, Periodical Compendiums so you can get up to date with the monthly online magazine, as well as many Books and other new releases from Discover Your Ancestors, including the popular Seven Generation Log Book, 10 Generation Relationship Chart and Birth Year from Census Date Calculator.
