Ancestors issue 87 now on sale

The October issue of Ancestors magazine is out now, and full of all sorts of fascinating articles.

Sarah Minney gives a guide on how to research at TNA, Michael Gandy offers some brickwall problem solutions, Fiona Fitzsimons looks at court rentals from Irish landed estates, Lindsay Calder goes in search of her Islay born great grandmother, Karen Wicks looks at the barnardos archive, Kathy Chater examines the fortunes of John Cranbrook, an early black settler in Britian, Phil Wood goes in search of the convicts who died at Tyburn Tree, Jo Mears delves into a governess ancestor at the Russian Revolution, and Lynn Cobinne examines the best resources for New Zealand ancestors. Plus all the usual regular features, including internet news from yours truly,. a look at wills online by Stuart Raymond, and editor Simon Fowler takes a look at an inept 18th century spy, Dr Florence Hensey.

It's so packed with goodies that I'm off to build an extension to the house to hold it all!
