Introducing Family history at your fingertips

0b19a60e-f8f2-4fd6-92dd-e42c64ceb04d

Just look what we've been working on!

Here at Family Tree HQ we've been busy writing your ultimate guide to researching your family history in the era of digital technology. From essential web resources to creating your tree in the cloud, from sharing your discoveries via social media, to treasuring the past with a Flickr album or YouTube channel, we have it all covered.

Family history at your fingertips will introduce you to the sources you need to begin tracing your family history, revealing what you can find online as well as what is available in physical libraries and archives. Plus we help you get to grips with DNA testing, dating your family photos and learning what your ancestors' medals were awarded for.

Family history at your fingertips even includes a free CD loaded with MyHeritage Family Tree Builder software that provides all you need to discover and document your family history.

Whether you're new to family history or an old hand, there is something for everyone. As technology develops, there is always something new to learn and new ways to research, share and treasure the past. Join us and enjoy the journey.

Family history at your fingertips is available in WHSmith stores from 21 October 2013 priced £7.99. A digital edition is available for most ereaders and tablets via Pocketmags.com.
