UK: Crossword puzzles for genealogists

Do you love doing the New York Times crossword puzzle? Do you love genealogy?

Tracing the Tribe assumes you love family history research or you wouldn't be reading this.

But if crossword puzzles are also a passion, the UK gen mag Your Family Tree offers one each month for free download. The current puzzle is here. Answers are in the following month's edition.

You might need a crash course in British genealogy to get through it, though, as definitions have a definite UK slant

There's a forum for questions and discussions, prizes, free software and much more, in addition to articles. A feature article of the current edition is on tracking female relatives.

The magazine's website offers resources for tracking insolvent ancestors, Caribbean ancestors, notices of new online databases, genealogical thriller books and much more, so check it out!
