I managed to get some of the back issues, but would love if not the mag and CD to get hold of the CDs of the back issues I've missed.

Wonder if we all asked enough they would produce the CDs we needed.

We looked into reprinting issue two because we had so many requests for it, but the costs were prohibitive. We are, however, thinking of producing digital versions of some of our out-of-stock titles. We also bring along various 'out of stock' titles to Who Do You Think You Are? LIVE each year. We had some that were found in a cupboard in our advertising department! We also have a few spare cover CDs knocking around in the office. Not a large number, but do feel free to email me if you are missing any and I will see what I can do. Obviously, reproducing a CD is cheaper than reproducing a magazine but we have usually licensed some of the content (especially the big datasets) from a family history society or company on the understanding that it is a one-off. I don't think they would be keen on us reprinting content that they normally charge for.

As far as I'm concerned, the best way to avoid missing an issue is to subscribe...

Problem was for me, and a lot more I suspect, we didn't know about the mag when it first started, maybe at that time, were not too deeply into Family Trees etc. I for one didn't know about the TV progs even. Did start to delve into it as a result of another (/) prog on the box. Can't remember which. Not [i]WDYTYA?[/i] though.
Interested in the surname SNELL circa 1910, Middlesex. and Claudia Vail nee Snell, living and married in Canada from about 1912/16.

I could really do with the CD on Gloucestershire.

I've seen one on Ebay but the prices for these mags and CDs are silly money. Would be good if the contents could be available on the website for those who have subscriptions.
