Discover my Past Scotland 18 now on sale

The April issue of Discover my Past Scotland (issue 18) is now on sale at a spring time bargain price of just £2.50 (heck, it's so good a price it's like that ALL year!).

In this month's issue John Hannavy looks at the Scottish textile industry, Wendy Glass examines Dundee in the 1950s and the Ancestral Scotland website, Michelle Higgs explores the iron working industry, Sue Wilkes visits the Highland Folk Museum and Katie Howard ventures forth to Shetland. Yours truly discusses business records for your Scottish research, as well as the latest genealogical news and product reviews, and in addition there are all the regular features such as Q&As, Bygone Days, events and more.

The snow is about to hit us yet again (what is it with frozen rain this year?!) but the joy of joys is that is that this is one magazine you don't need to visit the shops for - it's readable online at and can also be downloaded from the site in a handy PDF format, in case you do decide that you want something to read on your laptop as you venture forth into the Arctic tundra by train in the next few days...

Now remind me - did I mention the £2.50 bit...?!

Haven't read the magazine before, but with a LOT of weaving and a self-employed grocer in my tree, I think this one could be essential!
