Family Tree magazine’s new pocket guide to genealogy answers 50 key questions every family historian needs to know about their favourite hobby and is packed with more than 500 must-search websites.

Published in association with Ancestry, the 100-page Family History Handbook 2020 is bursting with valuable advice from Family Tree, which is celebrating its 35th anniversary this November, and comes complete with the Christmas 2019 print issue while stocks last.

Readers will be able to discover the hidden treasures at Ancestry with a special masterclass to help you get the most from the world’s biggest family history website (including DNA tips from the experts) and explore more than 500 websites in the exclusive family history website directory.

Now in its third year, the annual guide punches way above its weight in terms of genealogy know-how, and is the must-have guide for family historians of all levels of experience. Whether curious about your roots but with no idea how to begin, or keen to uncover the stories in your genes by taking a DNA test, the Family History Handbook has the answers to many frequently asked questions – and to those you never knew you needed to know!
