Almost since it inception I have had a subscription to the Who Do You Think You Are magazine, in the early years I lived 100% in NZ so it was an expensive, but not prohibitive indulgence to pay for an overseas subscription. In later years costs have risen and as I now spend a sizeable chunk of time living in the UK each year and could easily (and more cheaply) buy a copy in the supermarket I was considering cancelling the subscription.
Then along came virtual subscriptions which allows the magazine to be sent through, via the internet, to your iPad or Andriod Tablet. Such a subscription bought through Zinio costs £4.99 per copy or £34.99 for a years sub. This is a saving of 41% off the cover price of the magazine when bought at WH Smith’s/Tesco’s etc.
So what’s in the July issue? I have had a quick browse and may well get back with a more in-depth blog about one or two of the subjects the articles covered. However for now I can report that there are articles on Wills, Workhouses, Yorkshire, Suffragettes (very topical at the moment), Non-Conformists (I’m writing a talk on this subject at the moment) and quite a bit more.
I don’t get paid or get a free subscription for WDYTYA magazine so don’t think this is a advert for the mag, I just think that any keen genealogists would benefit from getting their hands on this magazine. The magazine also has a good website with plenty of pages to interest family historians.
I’m off to find a quiet spot and have a good read on my iPad mini for a few hours
