Family Tree magazine - family history survey

Let's have a wee natter! 😃

How do you feel about the family history scene just now? How healthy is the family history world, what activities, products, events, etc work for the family historian, and what doesn't? What would you like to see change in the near future - and what should stay the same?

For several years now I have been writing for the UK's longest running genealogy magazine, Family Tree (https://www.family-tree.co.uk), and yesterday I was contacted by the team and asked if I could perhaps fill out a short survey being sent out to various folk who work in the industry. I was more than happy to do so, but in discussion with the editor, Helen, I suggested it might be a conversation that readers of this blog might also wish to participate in. I'm glad to say that the offer has been taken up!

Whether you're an active family historian, a relative newbie, or someone who works in the variety of areas connected to the ancestral world, please take a few moments if you can to contribute to Family Tree's survey at the following link: https://www.research.net/r/Y78QM8H.

As Helen suggests, this is an opportunity to "mull over the future of family history and think of ways we can continue it as the fab hobby it is". In due course, I'll ask Helen to comment on some of the findings, and we'll publish some of your comments on this blog!  

Let us know what you think - and please do share the link to anyone you know who might be willing to add their thoughts!

(With thanks to Helen Tovey)
