Family Tree: February 2015 issue

The Sherlock Holmes silhouette on the front cover for the February issue of Family Tree highlights an article by Roy Stackdill "Inside a Researcher's Casebook."  A veteran researcher and former journalist who enjoys researching celebrity family trees, in theis article he draws lessons from research on Charlie Chaplin, Colin Dexter (creator of Inspector Morse), Josephine Tewson (who played Elizabeth, neighbour and victim in Keeping Up Appearances) Dame Judi Dench and more, each a tricky investigation.

In other major articles in the issue you can read about tracing WW1 merchant sailors; reckoning old weights, measures and money, finding graves online; reading Scottish wills and testaments, WW1 fashions, and death duties. Shorter articles include those by regular columnists and What Makes a Must Read Family History Blog (thanks to magazine editor Helen Tovey for the mention of Canada's Anglo-Celtic Connections).
