St Patrick's Day Bonanza

NEWS

As you would expect, there has been a flurry of Irish news today.  Ancestry seem keen to push out their Irish stuff, for one thing - see a neat listing here (most of the new material has already been mentioned over the past few days).  The Irish Genealogy News blog has two posts from today which are of considerable interest, too (they really are important items, too, but I'll not steal their thunder, so check them out direct).  There are also special offers from both Eneclann and Irish Origins (for the latter you can follow the Facebook link, or just use the code STPATS2011 in the Promotional Code box on the Sign Up page via here or in your Cart before checkout, to take advantage of 20% off all Origins.net subscriptions).  Finally, there's a major announcement, here, about the forthcoming launch of FindMyPast.ie !  Phew!!

Elsewhere, an interesting post by John Reid on recent progress in genetic genealogy can be found here.

Also, if you want to further immerse yourself under the weight of recent articles, and the like, concerning the forthcoming Census, then check out the SoG's post here.

And I really should have mentioned this a while ago, but the latest edition of The Family & Local History Handbook (No.13) is now available for purchase.
