'Urgent' FMP / British Library News

NEWS

Off the top of my head I can't remember if I've mentioned this previously, but FindMyPast and the British Library are holding a day of talks at the British Library's Conference Centre on Saturday 16th April - so move fast!  See here, where you will find the relevant 'booking' link.  There must be places left, or they wouldn't still be advertising it.

FMP has also added more than 1 million new parish records for Cambridgeshire to its database - see here.

TNA has launched a beta (or 'test') version of its new search facility, and is keen to garner feedback from users - so why not give it a go!  See the press release here, where you will find the relevant link to the so called 'Discovery' service.

And those of you with research interests in Wicklow, Ireland, will want to have a look at this post from the Irish Genealogy News blog.

WEBSITES

Whilst fiddling about with the British Library website, I fell upon an excellent collection of Podcasts, here.  Yet more for us all to listen to!

ON THIS DAY

A big day for space exploration...
1961:  Yuri Gagarin becomes the first man in space;
1981:  First space shuttle, Columbia, launched for the first time.
