Ancestors Magazine

The new magazine for today's family historian

Ancestors Magazine is the monthly family history magazine of The National Archives. It contains 64 pages of news and expert advice.

Whether you are tracing a family tree, researching military genealogy, or exploring local history, the magazine will prove invaluable.

Ancestors Magazine passes on practical tips on where, what and how to research. It is packed with fascinating articles and features which fill in the history of your ancestors' lives.

The British Isles have a long history of emigration to the Commonwealth and the United States. This legacy means that many family historians from abroad will find the magazine both interesting and useful.

Ancestors Magazine costs £3.50 and is available from both of our shops, via subscription, and at good newsagents and branches of WH Smith across the country.
