RootsTech is the name of a family history / technology conference being held in Salt Lake City in the the US during 10th-12th February. It has just been announced that several of its sessions will be broadcast online - for free! I can't confess to knowing an awful lot about this American get-together, but it may be worth keeping an eye on, here. Several UK-based blogs have details of the online talks, notably here, and what may prove to be a useful link-in here.
A couple of handy items have popped up on the ever-resourceful Anglo-Celtic Connections blog. The first is a whistle-stop guide to the terms UK, Great Britain, England, etc.; and the other is a well-spotted update to the FamilySearch database, namely, the addition of over 31,000,000 indexed entries for the 1891 Census of England and Wales (blog entry here, FamilySearch link here). Very handy.
Latest issue of Discover My Past - Scotland is now available, too.
ON THIS DAY
