Free for you: This month’s downloads
Resources for finding Dorset family, real-life reader case studies and much more!
Every month you can find an exclusive collection of records on our website to help you get further with your family history research and the articles in this issue.
You can find these great resources at www. yourfamilyhistorymag. co.uk/latest-issue – just click the downloads link on that page and then the blue download button at the Dropbox page you’ll be taken to.
YFH has teamed up with TheGenealogist to give readers free access to the 1871 census for Dorset. Simply go to www. thegenealogist.co.uk/ yfhfree and type in the code 314685 to get free access to the census for one month with state-of-the-art search features.
We’ve also got more resources to help you find your family in the county, covered in this month’s regional guide, in the form of Bridport, Dorchester and Lyme Regis entries from Slater’s 1852/3 Directory of Dorset.
This data has been kindly supplied by Direct Resources ( www.direct-resources. uk.com).
You can also find inspiration from great research stories in our two case studies from the archive, one about a WW2 bomber crash, and the other about a gettogether between a disparate group of genealogists.
If you’re looking to organise your research, you can also download a series of useful forms and charts designed by the YFH experts.
If you missed the downloads from a previous month, we also have an archive of recent links at www.historymags. co.uk/yfh.
