Family Tree magazine now online
Family Tree magazine (not to be confused with an American title with a similar name) is the latest UK genealogy magazine to now offer an option to purchase online in PDF format. A six issue subscription is £19.99 and twelve months at £34.99. It can be read on both iPad and Android based platforms. The key difference between it and the print copy is that you don't get the freebie cover mounted CD.
Currently edited by Helen Tovey, the magazine is produced by ABM Publishing, and has a lengthy history behind it, with a vast range of articles on all sorts of areas of interest to family history research. Yours truly also has the current privilege of producing the monthly news column for it. It's a great and authoritative read, and is a celebrity free zone, more interested in helping you and your research!

Note that back issues back to March 2010 are also available. Single issues can be purchased at £3.99.
