Thread: Which CCMB poster will the subject of an article in "Family Tree" magazine?

  1. #1

    Which CCMB poster will the subject of an article in "Family Tree" magazine?

    Family Tree magazine has a circulation of around 30,000 and is stocked by all good newsagents, such as WH Smith.

    I've just heard from the editor that she is commissioning an article of 1,200 words featuring the notable ancestors of an occasional, eccentric poster on here. The biggest problem will be persuading the reticent person to pose eating a huge gob-stopper while looking out to sea with a brass telescope.

    It may be a case for a Photoshop......

    Cyclops is chasing my family tree back for me has we speak. Some of the things he has found out for me about my FT have blown me away. The guy is an absolute legend.
    He hasn't finished mine yet but he has given me a few snippits. Aparently I got an ancestor called Cornelius. What sort of name is that

    It's really interesting isn't it, I had no idea how much information there is out there to be found tbh, I would never have found the two books full that he found about mine on my own I know that.

    Your relative Cornelius wasn't worth £7.5m by any chance was he?

    Yeah I will let you know he will be asking you to pose for a pic with something in your gob next btw

    Do you want to see the photo of your greatx2 grandparents (born in the early 1850's) now or later? Research finished - just the writing to do. A few surprises along the way - a bumpy ride.

    This will not have enhanced your street cred with the law-abiding/but intolerant pro-road-rage drivers on here....
