As my 2018 series, Research Rarities, draws to a close I was delighted when the October 2018 issue of the UK genealogical magazine Family Tree arrived with me last week. You can see the full series of articles below in reverse order, although there is also a November issue which is to yet to be published.
The reason I was so delighted was that my late father in law served on the Arctic Convoy and it was that museum that I choose to feature in the October 2018 issue.
It was only after my father in law passed away did we really fully appreciate the ordeal these soldiers went through as they navigated their way through not just a war and the challenges that brought, but also the plummeting temperatures and weather conditions.

What this feature has revealed is there are SO many places online that hold genealogical material and can add further depth and information to our research and that is just the places online let alone the wonderful resource rich archives and libraries amongst other organisations.
I will update the list with the research rarity for the November 2018 issue and reveal the 2019 series, so stay tuned!
