Who Do You Think You Are? Magazine: Summer 2020 Issue

This issue has a feature article on getting the most out of the records the UK National Archives has made freely available while the physical site at Kew is closed.

In Getting Married by Certificate Roberta Probert explains another option, aside from banns and less expensive than a licence, available for getting married in England and Wales.

Holiday Camps were big business on the East Coast of Norfolk and Suffolk where I was raised. Caroline Roope's three-page article summarises their history with a call out on Billy Butlin, the best-known personality in the business. It mentions he lived for a while in Canada, he served in the CEF, but not mentioning that Eaton's summer camp for employees was likely an inspiration.

There's also a five-page "Focus On" article on Welsh records and Chris Paton's article on Roman Catholic baptism records.

Canadian Public Libraries that subscribe to PressReader provide free access to the magazine.

Thanks for the preview :) I'm one of those who takes advantage of the PressReader access through my library. It's fantastic! PR is a bit annoying as an app, but it's still better than nothing, especially now hard copy issues of the magazine seem to have disappeared from the stores in Vancouver.
