The long awaited second issue of Discover Your Ancestors bookazine is being compiled right now. We'll be lifting the lid on many aspects of social history that help contextualise family history research, including:
- Schools and prisons
- Researching non-conformists
- Military research and resources
- Bygone fashion and costumes
- Cooking through the ages
- Exclusive! A mystery celebrity starts on his journey of discovery
- Regional focuses on Wales, Ireland and Scotland
- Federation of Family History Societies directory
- Professional Services to help budding genealogists
- Guidance on getting started on the family tree
Aimed largely at the newcomer to genealogy, but equally helpful and inspirational to the more experienced family historian, Discover Your Ancestors issue 2 will be launched at the Who Do you Think You Are Live! Show, 22-24 February 2013 at London Olympia.
Copies will immediately be available at all good newsagents in the UK and from March 2013 at selected premium newsagents overseas. The on sale period is 1 year or until fully sold. 25,000 copies will be circulated to fulfil demand.
A media press pack is available at http://dmgpublishing.co.uk/discoveryourancestors.pdf
