I’m so excited to announce that Australia now has a brand new history and genealogy magazine. Called “Inside History” it was launched at Adelaide on Monday 8th November during the History and Genealogy Roadshow, and this is one stunning magazine!! Its 80 pages are packed with advice, articles and expert tips on genealogy, and stories on Australia and New Zealand’s varied history.
Within the last few years we’ve seen the last issues of Ancestors magazine, as well as Ancestry Magazine, Evertons Genealogical Helper, Heritage Quest, Genealogical Computing and Discovering Family History. Now it is with sadness that I advise that ‘Practical Family History’ will soon be added to the list of genealogy magazines that have ceased production, with Deecember 2010 being its last issue.
