One of my all-time favourites mags is the Your Family History magazine (titled Your Family Tree in the UK). I have been a subscriber since the very first issue, and read most of them from cover to cover. But honestly I can’t believe that it is seven years since the first issue.
With this new issue ‘Your Family History‘ celebrate its 100th issue, and they’ve laid on the treats for readers. Apart from a rundown of highlights in the magazine over the last seven years, you will find this issue contains 1911 census special, 100 years on from the most recently available English and Welsh Census. And they help you uncover the secrets of your 1911 forebears and the stories of their day-to-day lives, discover where your military ancestors were serving at the time, and what old family photos from the time can reveal about your kin a century ago.
Readers get a look at preparations for this year’s UK Census, help you get to grips with records of migrants, Ireland, Liverpool and Huguenots, and give you their list of 100 essential family history resources.
As a very special bonus your commemorative magazine also includes a Your Family Tree mousemat, five exclusive prints of Britain in 1911, and a packed CD full of fantastic resources. There are also subscriptions to Findmypast.co.uk and an exclusive genealogy session with expert Anthony Adolph to give away, and copies of Family Tree Maker 2011 for new subscribers.
