Family History Society articles

I write regularly for magazines published by family history societies around the country, principally on DNA but also about surname reconstruction matters more widely including record digitisation and data management.

DNA articles from 2010 are localised to include data on surnames originating in the named counties and linked surname DNA projects.

Between 2002 and 2008 I also edited 32 issues of Pomerology, the quarterly newsletter of the Pomeroy Family Association, before replacing it with a website, an occasional blog, and an annual report.

My key articles in this category are:
