Wow, so much more information for me to use to locate my ancestors. The magazine is aimed at the American market but still have very useful tips on where to go to locate or look for other information. I’ve learnt so much and yet to investigate the many references within the magazine. Once I start on this road, I think it will open up yet another minefield of things to check. It’s exciting. I am now armed with what I need to do to commence the research whereas before I had no idea even where to start. Highly recommended.
