Your Family Tree issue 62

Next week sees issue 62 of Your Family Tree going on sale. Included are in depth articles on researching British and Irish wills, Jewish family history in Britain, theatrical ancestors, the Titanic, researching with online newspapers and deciphering old handwriting. Yours truly has also made a couple of contributions, with an in depth beginners guide to British and Irish birth certificates, and a case study on my great uncle, John Paton, interned within a WW1 German civilian POW camp for two years.

On the Scottish front, Edinburgh based Chris Duncan argues the case for the release of the 1911 Scottish census early, and there is both news on the Scotland Online acquisition of Findmypast.com and the new Culloden visitor centre competition.
