I received this information via email yesterday:


Yankee Publishing Acquires Family Tree Magazine

Dublin, NH (July 19, 2019) -- Yankee Publishing Inc. (YPI), publisher of Yankee, The Old Farmer’s
Almanac, and New Hampshire magazine, announced its acquisition of Family Tree magazine from F+W Media.

“We’re pleased to welcome Family Tree to YPI’s family of products,” said President and CEO Jamie
Trowbridge. “Family Tree fits well with our suite of brands, both in terms of content and business
strategy. We’re excited to take this step to continue YPI’s growth as an independent media company.”

Family Tree – with its print magazine, website, online classes and conferences, and web store – serves a passionate audience of genealogy enthusiasts. Interest in genealogy is surging in America, with over 20 million Americans having had their DNA tested by the four leading commercial ancestry and health databases, according to industry estimates.

"Yankee Publishing has a great vision for Family Tree," said Andrew Koch, editor of the magazine. "As part of YPI, we'll continue bringing the best genealogy advice and resources to our readers so they can discover their ancestors and connect to their roots."

The editorial offices of Family Tree will remain in the Cincinnati, Ohio area. The other functions of the business will be managed by YPI staff at its headquarters in Dublin, New Hampshire.
