A fond farewell

Postby Jon Bauckham » Fri Feb 01, 2019 12:41 pm

Hello everyone,

I'm very sorry to say that today will be my last day at Who Do You Think You Are? Magazine. After six-and-a-half years on the team, I'm now flying the nest and leaving to pursue new challenges (and all of those clichés!)

Although most of the recent forum duties have been carried out by my excellent colleague, Rosemary Collins, I've thoroughly enjoyed being part of such a passionate and engaged online community. I've certainly learned a great deal from the thousands of threads posted here!

I've also been fortunate enough to have made some wonderful family history friendships, not least with the late Sylvia Murphy (perhaps better known as 'sylcec'), who is still sorely missed by the whole team.

I plan to carry on writing various bits and pieces for the magazine, so you'll definitely see my name popping up in print from time to time. Plus, as a keen family historian outside of work, I've still got a few of my own brick walls to smash – you may well find me posting on here again (albeit in a 'civilian' capacity)!

With very best wishes,
Jon

Best of luck in all your future endeavours. Hope you have a lot of fun with new challenges and life in general. And good luck with your own genealogy brick walls.

Hi Jon,

All the very best in your future endeavours! I really appreciated your excellent work when we collaborated on a 'my family hero' piece a few months ago and I've enjoyed reading your posts and articles. Cheers, Ivan
