Interview with Your Family Tree's Tom Dennis

At the Who Do You Think You Are? Live event I caught up with Tom Dennis, the new editor of Your Family Tree magazine, who I not only got to reveal a tale of bigamy in his ancestry, but who I also managed to get to thank his designer publicly (you owe me one Alex!).

(With thanks to Tom)

Great Interview. I really appreciate it when people take the time to sit down and do great genealogy-related interviews on camera.

Putting a face behind a name is very important.

Chris, loved your interview with Tom and the relaxed style of the presentation.

I too went to the "Who Do You Think You Are? Live" show and Tom became my first ever interviewee on video for my !

I have to say you were much less uptight than I think I was (do my nerves show that much?), but Tom Dennis was great and gave me a great interview about what to expect in the magazine in the next few months.

Hi Nick,

Thanks for that, I did see your interview on the YFT Facebook page, glad to see I wasn't the only one to grill Tom! (Great minds think alike!).

As Tom Dennis's mother, I'd like to put the record straight!! My grandfather [Tom's g.grandfather] did go to America in the 1870's and marry there. He MAY have been a bigamist ...... no American divorce/ death records yet found. His 2nd marriage, in Scotland, records him as a widower!! So, get on with the research Tom.
