This month I’ve contributed another case-study type article to Discover Your Ancestors using the resources at my disposal from the magazine’s main sponsor: TheGenealogist.co.uk
But this edition of the online periodical has so much more than just my piece to recommend it! This week I have read it from cover to cover and can endorse it as a really good read for the contributions from some excellent experts in family and social history.
