Your Family Tree magazine renews website

Your Family Tree, which appears on newsstands in Canada with cover title Your Family History, was one to which I formerly subscribed. I credit it with revitalizing UK genealogy magazines which for years were dominated by Family Tree's dour presentation. However, in turn Your Family Tree's went stale some years ago when the editor changed. I let my subscription expire.

Now there's a new editor, Tom Dennis. While I haven't seen the magazine lately renewing the website is an encouraging sign. Here's the editor's blurb.

Whether you’re a seasoned genealogist or coming to family history for the first time, you’ll find a wealth of research tools, tips and resources to help make your search as productive and rewarding as possible at the all-new www.yourfamilytreemag.co.uk.

As well as news, events and opinion the new Getting Started section is packed with a range of explanations, tips and techniques for taking the first steps in tracing your family tree.

Within the Research Tips page we’ll bring you advice and ideas for taking your research further – whether it’s how to unearth a story about an ancestor, or how to overcome common brick walls.

We’ve been working incredibly hard to bring you this exciting new online facility, which is intended to act as a central hub for all of your family history needs – but please do keep in contact with us, either through the new comments facility at the foot of each post, or through our Meet the Team page. We’d love to hear your feedback and ideas on how to make this website, and the magazine, even better!

Thanks, and happy researching!

Tom Dennis, Editor
