Public Records (Scotland) Bill


Legislation has been passed this week in Scotland to improve record keeping across the public sector - essentially the result of problems encountered by folk in the past trying to find out about their parentage, etc., after passing through residential homes and the like (aka 'vulnerable people').  All good stuff - and if you'd like it from the horse's mouth, then check out the National Archives of Scotland's post here.

The City of York and District FHS Family History Fair takes place on 26th March - see here.

The latest TNA podcast can be found here ('Family History Resources at TNA').


A couple of short pieces for you to muse over.  The first is from The Wandering Genealogist, who wonders if he is the only family historian who has been finding it difficult to get excited over the recent RootsTech furore.  And a post from the MyHeritage blog ponders the question of the world's longest lineages and biggest family trees.
