WDYTYA Magazine July 2018

Suffragettes: the guide on page 65 "Arrested Campaigners 1906-1914" is inaccurate as you cannot use a reference like "HO149245" as there will be no results, but you can use the former Home Office reference "1492452" or use the person's name although some of the "campaigners" are not listed in The National Archives (TNA) catalogue. It is known that some of the sub-files (e.g. "/6") may have been destroyed. Other Suffragette files can be found on ...

Bomber Command Memorial

Just been reading the very good article by Rosemary on the unveiling of the new memorial.
One point that might interest people is that the height of the spire is the exact length of the wingspan
of a Lancaster bomber.I live in Lincoln and the spire is very impressive.

Print off Ancestry tree - from Apr 2018 issue...


I'm curious about the sidebar on page 28 to the Spring clean your family tree article in the Apr 2108 issue that outlines how to "Print off your Ancestry tree." I followed the instructions, but got no option to "Create a poster", only Print or Cancel (see attached screen capture) I missing something? And when I went into MyCanvas directly, the prices for printing posters are very clear - nothing is free.

Has something ...

Who is your family hero?

Hello everyone,

It's Jon Bauckham, Features Editor at WDYTYA? Magazine here. I just wondered whether anyone would be interested in being interviewed for the My Family Hero section of the magazine?

Just in case you're not familiar with the section, it gives readers a chance to wax lyrical about their favourite ancestor and what they have managed to uncover about their lives. The articles are written in-house (usually by myself) based on a short phone ...

Weekly e-newsletter - font colour

May I request that you darken the font colour in the "From the forum" section. On my ipad the light grey colour is hard to read.

Doubled subscription and no notice

I've been a subscriber from the very outset, but my subscription has just been doubled and taken by direct debit without any advance notice to me. That's it. I've had enough and I've cancelled the subscription. I love the magazine, but it's no way to treat longstanding subscribers who helped make the magazine what it is. Such a shame.

RootsWeb and Find a Grave

Hello everyone,

Excuse the mass post, but I was hoping to reach out to readers who might be interested in being quoted in a couple of news stories in the next issue of our magazine.

First, as you might have seen, the free RootsWeb website was recently taken down following a security breach. I'm looking to speak to people who used the website for their family history research and have been affected by this loss. ...

Immediate Media --- not so immediate ...

Hi All,

I've been trying to contact Immediate Media/ about my WDYTYA magazine subscription. Back in August I set up a new subscription, expecting it to kick in for the December issue when my current subscription ended. I can see the Order online, but it appears to not have been activated, and I know the Direct Debit for this subscription has yet to be used. I've emailed them on the 24th November, and again today, ...

Index for magazines

I am wondering if the topic of an index for the magazine has been aired recently. I now have about 3 years worth of the magazine and I would love to have an index. Apparently it has been discussed in the past and now I would like to know if it ever happened.
