December 2015 edition of Family Tree magazine on sale

The latest edition of the UK's Family Tree magazine is now available at all good newsagents, and as usual is packed with a variety of goodies.

Tom Hood looks at childhood tragedies, David Annal examines family history databases, and Caroline Makein provides an overview of the decennial censuses. There's an intersting feature from Richard Morgan on an embezzling banker, Sharon Brookshaw looks at the tradition of having a family cradle, Amanda Randall takes a peak at temporary accommodation in the past, whilst Jayne Shrimpton explores portraits and family artworks.

There are also features on electoral registers, Suffragettes, and tradesmen, case studies and more. Yours truly also gets in with an article on the joys of researching Scottish ancestry, and he many differences with the records compared to the rest of the UK, which keeps it all interesting!
