With the next, big ten-part series in July 2014, the BBC will be celebrating the 10th anniversary and the 100th episode of Who Do You Think You Are?, providing a fantastic platform for our accompanying, brand-new, easy-to-use guide. The launch of WDYTYA? in 2004 ignited an extraordinary boom in family history in the UK, but in the decade since then the world of genealogy has been transformed. While the sources and information remain the same, the ways of accessing them have multiplied and changed almost beyond recognition, and the team at WDYTYA? exclusively share their experience and expertise in this essential handbook. Drawing on celebrity stories to illustrate and inspire, and providing hints, tips and practical step-by-steps our attractively packaged pocket handbook will bring family history to life for fans of the show, and for any amateur sleuths starting out on their own journey of discovery.
A new concise guide to tracing your family tree, from the UK's leading and most trusted genealogy brand.
