The following is an announcement from The National Archives (in Great Britain, not the United States):
The National Archives currently produces a family history magazine, ‘Ancestors’, in partnership with Wharncliffe Publishing Ltd.
The current contract with Wharncliffe Publishing Ltd comes to an end on 31 March. We decided to take this opportunity to look at the magazine and make sure that it is offering best value for money, both for its readers and for The National Archives.
As a result of this review, ‘Ancestors’ will be discontinued and the last publication will be the April issue (no 94), available from Thursday 25 March.
All subscribers are entitled to a refund for any outstanding monies, and all refunds will be handled by Wharncliffe Publishing Ltd. Subscribers should contact the Wharncliffe Publishing Ltd customer services team on 01226 734689 to obtain a refund, or write to Wharncliffe History Magazines, The Drill Hall, Eastgate, Barnsley S70 2EU.
We are currently discussing plans to launch a new magazine from The National Archives in the autumn. This work is being led by Simon Fowler, the current editor of ‘Ancestors’, and his team. If you would like more details please contact him. Further information will also be available on our website later in the year and in our free monthly enewsletter, which you can sign up to at www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/enewsletter
