Hey that’s me!

25 Jan

The most exciting thing about picking up the latest edition of BBC Who Do You Think You Are Magazine this morning should have been the free copy of the showguide for Who Do You Think You Are? Live, but no, even more exciting than that was the mention of my blog in their article on genealogy blogs.

Audrey Collins had mentioned on The Family Recorder blog that both Anglo-Celtic Connections and Scottish GENES were mentioned in this edition, and I will forgive her for not mentioning my blog (I think she wanted to keep it a surprise for me!)

I resisted to temptation to wander around waving the magazine in front of anyone unfortunate enough to be in the vicinity, I don’t think they would have been quite so excited as I was.

So thank you Jonathan Warren (the author of the piece) and Who Do You Think You Are Magazine for publishing the article, it means a lot to me  to be recognised in this way.

    I know the feeling about wanting to tell everyone, I had a letter published in the same magazine last year and felt the need to tell as many people as would listen (sadly not many, hehe). That reminds me, my copies must be stacking up at home having been gone four months now, didn’t get a chance to read them at Christmas. Anyway, congrats on being in it🙂

      I resisted the temptation until I got home, when I showed it to my wife and she was suitably unimpressed! I don’t suppose I shall get mobbed by hoards of autograph hunters on my way to work just yet!

    Woohoo! You will definitely need that T-shirt and geneacards for WDYTYA Live, now you’re famous and all.

    Thanks very much for the kind words, I used to wonder whether anyone would be interested in reading what I wrote, and it turns out they have been!
