Can't find your favourite family history magazine?

I was in Glasgow Central Station on Saturday, and for the third time in about four months ended up helping somebody who asked a staff member "Where are the family history magazines?", and who received no help, the attendant not knowing himself. The problem is that they are located right on the bottom shelf, and right at the back of a set of three raised tiered shelves within, completely out of view even from the ground level based canine genealogical fraternity. Here's a pic to show you where to look:

I suspect Glasgow Central is not the only place in the UK that puts such a low priority on displaying family history magazines. They say that pornography and genealogy are the two biggest areas of interest on the internet. You'll find the porn mags in most newsagents easily enough...

Don't forget that you can subscribe to your favourite genealogy magazines - for details on their websites, visit the GENES Links section on this blog (see menu bar at the top).
