HOD Build-up Begins

NEWS

OK, so it's not family history news, but us genealogists all love the Heritage Open Days, don't we?  Well, this year the event is to be held over 8th-11th September - and if you're closely involved with the goings-on then you may wish to pop along to one of the forthcoming workshops at Morpeth, St.Helens or London - see here.  Booking deadline is 11th March.

International Women's Day is almost upon us (8th March) - and it's celebrating its centenary this year.  A couple of places to start if you're interested in learning more are here and here.

And WDYTYA? Magazine has a new Facebook page.

An interview with Neil Fraser from BBC's Heir Hunters can be found here.

And an interesting illustrative piece from The Wandering Genealogist can be found here.  A lesson for us all, I think.
