WEL­COME

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

There’s been a real buzz in the of­fice as we’ve put this month’s is­sue to­gether. The 12th se­ries of Who Do You Think You Are? starts in mid-Au­gust and we’ve taken a peek be­hind the scenes to see what’s in store (see page 19). The celebri­ties un­cover some re­ally un­usual sto­ries this year and I can’t wait to see what re­sources they used. If you get the fam­ily his­tory bug af­ter watch­ing the show or want to get your re­search or­gan­ised, our editor Sarah has put to­gether a fas­ci­nat­ing guide to giv­ing your­self the WDYTYA? treat­ment (page 27).

Of­ten, miss­ing birth records can halt your re­search in its tracks – our fea­ture on page 61 shows you how vac­ci­na­tion reg­is­ters may pro­vide an an­swer. You might also be un­able to find bap­tism, mar­riage or death records be­cause your an­ces­tor was a non­con­formist (see page 56), or have too many in­di­vid­u­als with the same name to choose from – see this month’s Ge­neal­ogy Mas­ter­class on page 54 for some ex­pert ad­vice.

Any­way, en­joy the start of the se­ries. Let us know what you think!
