Ancestors issue 86 - Second World War Special

It's September, and the 70th anniversary of the start of the Second World War is just two days away.

To commemorate the occasion, The National Archives' Ancestors magazine is devoting an entire issue to the conflict. John Leete looks at the role of the police in Britain during the war, Nicola Lisle meets the Women's Royal Naval Service, there's a comprehensive guide to the most useful WW2 records for your family history research, a feature by Pauline Pedersen on war graves, Simon Fowler looks at the case of music star Ivor Novello, prosecuted for driving his car during the war without a license, whilst Diane Varty meets the Lumberjlls (the Women's Land Army).

The rest of history has not been forgotten! Alan Crosby looks at the Overseers of the Poor, Eneclann's Fiona Fitzsimonns looks at Irish military records, and Derek Ironmonger compares the value for money offered by different census providers, Stuart Raymond looks at sources for armed forces research online, Joseph Arch examines attempts to prevent poaching and yours truly offers the latest online news. Plus all the latest news and reviews, and more.

Perfect reading material for when you need to run for the shelters, and only £3.99 from all patriotic newsagents.


Is that an air raid siren I hear....?!
