Another UK Genealogy Magazine to Cease Publication

Hello All:

It seems that the hard economic times has taken another bite. Unfortunately, it is in the UK genealogy world. The magazine "Practical Family History" will cease publication soon. This is one of the longest running genealogy magazines in the UK and had a focus for the beginner in family history. It is hard to compete with the internet and other publications, especially when times are tough economically such as they are now.

The magazine served the genealogy community very well and gave alot of good information to the budding genealogist. I wish the staff all the best, and am sorry to see PFH go.
