Oh, but yes! It's the Irish Census on Sunday 10th April, so you're gonna hear a fair bit about it over the next few days. The latest newsletter from Eneclann will get you in the mood.
Irish researchers may also be interested in this special lecture session at the National Museum of Ireland on the subject of 'The Irish in the American Civil War'.
A couple of other conferences/meetings of interest:-
- GOONS Conference & AGM at Warrington over 15th-17th April (sorry for the late notice);
- A special 'Family Tree Maker' session at Pudsey on 11th April (again, you'll have to be quick).
FindMyPast have also improved the search facility for their Overseas, At Sea and Army death records - see here.
The BBC has delivered its weekly instalment of 'History Headlines', here. And there's a witty little tale, here.
TV & Radio of a historical nature for the coming week can be found here.
