Issue 137 (January 2014) of Your Family Tree magazine went on sale today (http://www.yourfamilytreemag.co.uk/). I wrote the cover feature on family history on the internet made easy.
The internet has revolutionised family history research. Long gone are the days of viewing the censuses and other records on microfilm in your local County Record Office. Instead you can take your family history back to 1800 and earlier without ever leaving the comfort of your sofa.
