Neat New Websites

WEBSITES

A couple of new websites have been brought to our attention by the Scottish GENES blog which, firstly, thoroughly recommends the BBC's Ulster-Scots effort which was launched a few days ago.  Read the blog post here, and the direct link is here.  The very same blog also suggests that the Medals Reunited Project is worth a look, too - see here.  Thanks Chris!

NEWS

A website that is hardly new, and which many of you will be familiar with, is FamilyRelatives.  Well, as blogger John Gasson points out, they are celebrating their fifth anniversary with a special subscription offer, which lasts until the end of May.  Check John's post out, here, where you will find the relevant information.  Good spot, John.

ARTICLES

John Reid, of the Anglo-Celtic Connections blog, tells us of an article on DNA which took his fancy - see his post here...

OTHER STUFF

... and he also brings us the result of the little survey he posed us last week, here.

One last thing.  MyHeritage have posted a little video effort, here, which caught my eye. Quite apart from the content, it seems like a really neat idea to put something together like that using photos of the places where your ancestors lived.  Food for thought.
