Important Announcement: This forum will close in June

Postby Editor » Thu May 07, 2020 8:49 am

It is with a heavy heart that I have to announce that we will be closing the Who Do You Think You Are? Magazine forum in June 2020. This forum has been at the heart of our website for almost 13 years, but the platform it runs on does not offer the level of security that people rightly expect today. We have plans to upgrade to a better, more secure website that should be easier for our readers to use, and sadly it’s not financially viable for us to upgrade the forum at the same time.

Over the years I have been inspired by your dedication and I have learned so much from you all, whether it’s magazine feedback, new websites or creative approaches to genealogical problems. Please stay in touch with us via social media or email. We have featured many of your success stories in the magazine, but there have been countless acts of kindness over the years which will not be forgotten.

I know that many of you have made friends through this forum and I hope this gives you enough notice to get in touch with other and copy and paste any threads you wish to keep a record of.

If you want to continue supporting each other with genealogical queries and sharing family history chat, then please join our Facebook Group https://www.facebook.com/groups/wdytyareadergroup/?source_id=211417390178 or sign up to RootsChat.com another popular family history forum.

Thank you once more for all your support. Keep in touch and happy hunting!

Very sad news. I’ve learned so much from the knowledge shared so generously here, and many puzzles have been solved.

Such a shame. Understand the reasoning but the forum will be sorely missed. :cry:

This is very sad. Surely the archive is not going to be scrapped. Will it not be part of the new website ?
