GOONS Activity

NEWS

The Guild of One-Name Studies is holding a special one-day seminar on Saturday 13th August 2011 entitled The Art of One-Name Studies at Alwalton, Peterborough, and bookings are now being taken - see here.  Anyone can attend, and it only costs a fiver!

The Guild has also announced a special extended offer to new joiners - see here - which runs in conjunction with the forthcoming Yorkshire Family History Fair in June.

Chris Paton has fell upon news of a major new online course on the subject of Tracing Your Irish Ancestors.

On the subject of the Irish, check out the National Library of Ireland's latest newsletter, here.  Nothing startling to report, but note that their exhibitions area will be open on Sundays from 5th June; and that they hold guided tours every Saturday.

The National Library of Scotland has also issued a news release, concerning their Gaelic Language Plan and how you can have your say on the matter - see here for further information.

As for forthcoming fairs/events, we have:
  • Shropshire FHS Open Day & Fair at Shrewsbury on Saturday 4th June - see here;
  • Book Fair at London Hotel Russell on Sunday 5th June - see here.

WEBSITES

'Maps You Can Play With' is the title of the latest - and very useful - post on The Family Recorder blog.

OTHER STUFF

A short clip about a 'Genealogy Cruise' can be found here.  Very nice, I must say.

ON THIS DAY

1902:  Treaty of Vereeniging brought the Boer War to an end;
1911:  Titanic launched at Belfast (Centenary!).
