Maurice Tate, possibly the greatest bowler of his era…

The article I wrote that came third in the national competition of the Federation of Family History Societies for stories about sportsmen in your family in 2012 is being published in a monthly magazine in February 2014.

MT1‘Making Amends for His Father’, features in Your Family Tree Magazine as a case study. The article concerns a famous cricketer of the 1920s and 1930s and uncovers the story of a son who eventually fulfilled his father’s dream of Ashes and test match glory.

Maurice Tate was my grandfather’s second cousin and was a great celebrity of his day. The magazine will be on sale this month in all good newsagents.
