WDYTYA Magazine Index Pt 1

This is not really a Blog Post as such, Its Part 1 of a LONG Index, I am compiling this Index purely for my own use, as it drives me crazy trying to remember which Issue of the Who Do You Think You Are magazine I saw a particular subject covered in.
I only buy the one Magazine because it was this Program & the 1st Book that OH bought me that got me started on my Tree.
I love my Magazine arriving every month, and wouldn’t swap it for anything. So I thought that maybe some more of you feel the same as me, so I thought I would share this.
It is not a totally full list of everything by any means, but it does list the major articles and subjects, I will just index 12 issues at a time, because otherwise it might stretch right down the road !! Let me know if I have made any errors and I will correct, thanks.
I hope you should be able to just copy & paste this article, then be able to print out to keep with your magazines. Thats what I’m doing.

    Hi Lynn, I subscribe to this magazine and it is fascinating, but very frustrating when you can remember reading something but cant remember which issue it was in.

    Martin 17 May 2012 16.55 I have just read the latest magazine and like many other readers have been so frustrated that I could not remember if an article had been written about a certain subject. I have often been tempted to write an index but it would have driven me to distraction. I have always wondered if WDYTYA would have produced a separate magazine in index format but I don't think any of the Family History mags.do.
    Congratulations Lynn on tackling such a project and for sharing it with us.
