Who Do You Think You Are? Magazine is the UK's number one magazine for anyone interested in family history. If you love Who Do You Think You Are? on TV, don't leave family history research to the celebrities – start discovering your family's story today.

In every one of our 13 issues a year, our team of leading family history experts offer their unmissable advice on how to research your family tree. Whether you're just starting out or already an experienced researcher, our guides tell you everything you need to discover your ancestors' stories – from the basics of finding out when they were born, married and died, to finding wills, understanding military records and tracing ancestors overseas, whether in Ireland, America or India. In our monthly Best Websites feature, we reveal how much there is to discover on the Internet, helping you trace your family tree without leaving home. We also report on the latest issues affecting family history, from new records being made available to the impact of budget cuts on local archives.

Our readers are at the heart of everything we do. That's why every month we give space to the astonishing true stories they found out about their families, with readers sharing their inspiring family heroes, revealing how they broke down their brick walls, and telling the stories behind their family photographs.

Got a family history problem you're stuck on? In our monthly seven-page Q&A section, our panel of experts answer readers' queries on everything from finding missing records, to tracing an ancestor's army service, to dating old photographs. Why not write in with your question to see if we can help you?

Family history isn't just about discovering who our ancestors were – we can learn so much about the world they lived in. Every month, we include a fascinating look at social history, revealing what life in the past was like for rich and poor alike, and the extraordinary times our ancestors lived through. On top of that, we have a special monthly column looking at a different job our ancestors would have worked in.

In addition, we have reviews of the latest family history books and interviews with the authors; previews of new history programmes on TV; helpful tips on how you can use the latest technology to help your research; fascinating looks at the hidden gems in our nation's archives; and a monthly celebration of the volunteers working on local and family history projects. As the official companion to the BBC TV series, we also reveal more about how the celebrity stories are researched.

There's never been a better time to look into your past or a better place to start. Take out a Who Do You Think You Are? Magazine subscription today and bring your family history to life. A monthly subscription also makes a great gift for anyone who's interested in ancestry. Click Give a Gift to find out more.
