Your Family History issue 169 on sale

Details of the latest Your Family History magazine:

Your Family History - May 2016

We’re looking at sport in our main feature this month. We live in an age of sedentary habits and an obesity crisis, so it’s rather salutary to look at the wide number of sporting activities our ancestors and nearer family members took part in, despite not having the hi-tech clothing or kit that we have today. They could face danger in their pursuits, as we explore, yet it did not stop them taking part.

Elsewhere in the magazine, we have a bit of a Scottish focus this month, both with Chris Paton’s feature on the digital collections held by the National Library of Scotland, and with Simon Wills’ fascinating look at the fishwives and fisher girls of the past. We also go to Jutland, with a lovely reader case study where one man’s memories of the 1916 battle are given, in his own words.
