Over the period of 15 years, UK’s much loved genealogy magazine ‘Your Family History’ magazine (also known as “Your Family Tree”) well and truly cemented itself as one of the best UK genealogy magazines around. However sadly despite that, back in 2018 it went the way of so many print magazines, and ceased production, with Issue 192 (March 2018) being the last.
I was a huge fan of this magazine right from the very first issue, and read them from cover-to-cover, so I can verify that every issue was a brilliant read, and was packed with useful information on how to get the most out of your research.
Now we have been given a large collection of these magazines to find good homes for. As there’s too many for one list we’re listing them in batches.
We’ve already listed Issues 1-50 CLICK HERE, and 51-100 CLICK HERE to see which of these issues are still available, and below are the issues 100 to 163 (minus a few that were missing from this collection).
The Your Family History magazines sold for $15.95/per issue in Australia, but we’re clearing them for $9.50 per issue (which includes freight within Australia). There’s one copy of each only, so get in quick.
