WEL­COME

Who Do You Think You Are? Magazine - - WELCOME -

Miss­ing an­ces­tors – they are what makes fam­ily his­tory both frus­trat­ing and fun. “Where are you?” we mut­ter un­der our breath as we scour on­line in­dexes – but the hard­est to find can also bring us the most joy as our ‘Eureka mo­ment’ fea­ture (page 74) demon­strates each month. It’s those spe­cial mo­ments that ge­neal­o­gist Laura Berry en­joys the most when she’s re­search­ing for the TV se­ries and she’s got lots of tips on find­ing elu­sive fore­bears to share with read­ers (page 17).

This month marks two im­por­tant cen­te­nar­ies: the bat­tle for Gal­lipoli (page 22) and the sink­ing of the Lusi­ta­nia (page 52). If you have fam­ily who were af­fected by th­ese events then please share your sto­ries with us.

Fi­nally, we’re off to Birm­ing­ham’s NEC for Who Do You Think You Are? Live, from 16-18 April, so pop by our stand to pick up some bar­gains and say hello. Don’t worry if the work­shops look sold out on the web­site, there are al­ways tick­ets held back on the day, just head to the Work­shop Ticket Book­ing Desk. It’s go­ing to be the big­gest event yet so we’re get­ting very ex­cited. See you there!
