WEL­COME

Who Do You Think You Are? Magazine - - NEWS - Sarah Wil­liams, Editor sarah.wil­liams@im­me­di­ate.co.uk

Wow, 100 is­sues! It seems like only yes­ter­day that I sent the first is­sue of WDYTYA? Mag­a­zine to press. I know that some of you have been on the en­tire jour­ney with me and will recog­nise all of the past cov­ers we have put on the front of the mag­a­zine this month. But for oth­ers, this will be your first is­sue ( I should warn you, our cov­ers are usu­ally a bit more de­mure, I just couldn’t re­sist a bit of cel­e­bra­tory bling!).

It is a real joy and a priv­i­lege to edit this mag­a­zine and I have learned a huge amount and had so much fun putting it to­gether each month. The 100 web­sites I chose for our main fea­ture (page 17) are just the tip of the ice­berg as far as web re­sources are con­cerned. And on­line ge­neal­ogy it­self is just the tip of the ice­berg com­pared to what is avail­able in the ar­chives (see page 46 as an ex­am­ple).

The mag­a­zine wouldn’t ex­ist if it weren’t for you the read­ers. It was in­spir­ing meet­ing so many of you at WDYTYA? Live this April and I have taken note of all the fea­ture sug­ges­tions you made. Watch this space! In the mean­time, I hope you en­joy this is­sue (and the next 100!). Happy hunt­ing...
