Today's big news is the unveiling of the release date of the 1911 Scottish Census - 5th April 2011. For the official statement and press release, click here.
The Society of Genealogists has extended the time for which folk can book a place at their Centenary Conference at the special 'early bird' prices. Non-members are welcome to attend, and you have until the end of February to get in at the special rate. The big day is Saturday 7th May (dedicated site here).
A couple of interesting little snippets from the award-winning Anglo-Celtic Connections blog, namely the news of a pending Web-based UK-wide libraries catalogue (which sounds exciting), and an updated 'Tree to Go' family tree 'app' from Ancestry.com for the iPhone, iPad & iPod Touch.
The February issue of BBC History Magazine is now available - see here. And the Beeb have also released a 'what's on' guide, events-wise, for the month here.
OK, so it's a rather short article - just a blog entry actually - but The Wandering Genealogist issues a warning to us all about online family trees, here, which is worth taking note of.
ON THIS DAY
1901: Funeral of Queen Victoria;
1990: End of apartheid in South Africa.
