Learn, discover and share with Family Tree

Family Tree magazine was first published in 1984. The world, genealogy, and what we do, is a little different now, but one thing hasn't changed: we're still passionate and excited about helping you discover and explore your family history.

What we do

The much-loved magazine is still a huge part of what we do (it's published every month in both print and digital editions), but we also provide impartial, trusted and friendly advice in many different ways, including:

  • The Family Tree website (you are here!)
  • The weekly Family Tree email newsletter (sign up for free)
  • Virtual events, conferences and webinars
  • Special guides and publications to help you with your research
