Your Family History issue 175 on sale

The latest issue of Your Family History (Nov 2016, issue 175) has a few contributions from yours truly. The main articleis this month's cover feature, Researching Family Crises, looking at situations surrounding our ancestors' most basic vital events, when the chips were down, and additional records that may be available as a consequence. In addition, I also have an article looking at the new Irish BMD records offerings on, and a Q&A response later in the magazine.

Other features in this month's magazine include a piece from Andrew Chapman on a London cholera outbreak, a research guide to Pembrokeshire, the social history of fever, the occupation of sea captain, the treatment of mental illness at Bedlam, Sue Wilkes' piece on the secrecy of some Catholic services, regular case features, news, reviews, and much more.

For further details visit, whilst the magazine itself is now available to buy in all good newsagents.
