Last year I wrote about the magazine “Discovering Your Ancestors” which was put out by Ancestry.co.uk and I wondered if there was going to be any more issues. Thanks to Chris Paton of the British Genes blog I now know that “Discovering Your Ancestors” isn’t a magazine, but a bookazine !! And that a 2nd edition is due out next month to coincide with the “Who Do you Think You Are Live! Show in London. It seems that this is going to be a yearly event and issuing it in time for the big WDYTYA show makes a lot of commercial sense.
Thanks Chris for keeping us informed of this as I shall certainly be buying a copy. Last year saw the demise of one genealogy magazine and gossip says that a few others are struggling so it makes sense to create a bookazine which must be cheaper to produce than a book, can be sold at a more affordable price whilst having some good quality content.
Below is the link to the press release from the publishers. I shall be buying a digital copy as soon as it is published and if it is as good as the first issue it will be well worth the £5.99.
