Who Do You Think You Are? Magazine - - NEWS - Claire Vaughan, Act­ing Editor

As Sarah takes a hard-earned break over the sum­mer and I take my place in the hot seat, there are some great treats com­ing up – most no­tably the 12th se­ries of Who Do You Think You Are? In this is­sue we re­veal the 10 celebri­ties who will be ex­plor­ing their fam­ily his­tory this year, mak­ing all sorts of in­trigu­ing dis­cov­er­ies along the way. In a dou­ble help­ing of tele­vi­sual ge­neal­ogy, WDYTYA? USA is cur­rently on our screens. Don’t miss our fea­ture on how to trace your an­ces­tors who em­i­grated to Amer­ica (page 52).

If you’re stumped over the cir­cum­stances of a fore­bear’s death, turn to page 23 for our com­pre­hen­sive guide to track­ing down those elu­sive or un­usual records that will pro­vide the an­swers.

We also start a new ad­vanced Mas­ter­class se­ries (page 50) – this month tack­ling the en­dur­ing prob­lem of names miss­ing from parish reg­is­ters. Add to the list Not­ting­hamshire re­sources, the Land Registry Dig­i­tal Ar­chives, the best fam­ily his­tory fo­rums, milliners and First World War fa­thers, and I reckon you’ve ggot the per­fectp Au­gust read. En­joy!
