History Magazine is produced by a team dedicated to increasing the understanding of social history, in particular the life and times of ordinary people.

The great success the magazine has enjoyed has lead to the publication of History Magazine Volume One and History Magazine Volume Two a collection of all the best of History Magazine from each year of publication.
From the same team comes Family Chronicle, a leading genealogy magazine for genealogists and family historians researching their roots.
